Architecture

  • User Interface Layer: This will include the page level layer which will be accessing the other layers beneath to present the data.
  • Database Specific Layer: This acts as a bridge between the Physical Database and the Business Logic accessing the data.
  • Business Specific Layer: This acts as a bridge between the User Interface layer and Database layer.This will contain all the business logic for the different components involved in the project.
  • Physical Database Layer: This includes MSSQL with the tables, views, stored procedures etc.
