Keeping in mind the enormous structure of the website and the challenges involved a four-tier development approach was adopted consisting of:
  • The Database layer containing MYSQL Server Database, Tables, Stored Procedures and so on.
  • The Data Access layer containing the libraries responsible for accessing data from the database.
  • The Business Logic layer consisting of all the business logic procedures for modules like My Account, My Wish List, Check Out, Login, Blogs etc.
  • The User Interface layer which forms the Graphical User Interface of the website.


It was a customized web-based application. We studied and analyzed the requirement and developed an online shopping cart to manage unlimited products, different pricing options, quick search functionality etc. providing the full-featured Magento based ecommerce solution including payment gateway as well. PHP and MYSQL Server formed the basis of development. Various other modules were developed in PHP such that they can be executed directly from the UI layer. These PHP files consisted of all the business logics used for respective modules like Save (Add/Update), Delete, Get Single Object, Get Multiple Objects for Listing and were designed to be capable of handling many more logics which were not related to the database.

The Data Access layer contained the libraries responsible for accessing data from the database and built a generic query for insert, update, delete and select depending on the business class. All business layer components were coded to use this library for data accessing process from database. Stored procedures were used only for complex retrieval of data from multiple tables and were entirely avoided with conditional syntax to ensure smooth performance of the website. The UI layer was kept free of any business logic with images, applications and data being called from their respective servers.

Development Highlights

The main objective of the project was to launch a customized Magento online store with custom design and modules. The purpose is to develop a full-featured ecommerce online store where customers can buy products online and get it delivered at their place. Customizable viewing options were designed to enhance user experience and allow for extensive personalization of the site. SEO activities performed ensured high visibility for the site over the internet. Web usability guidelines were strictly followed during development and the interface was made easily navigable through judicious use of AJAX, CSS and HTML controls. The site was developed and fully functional within a span of 4 months.
