Chris Hartjes' Blog:
Converting Legacy Apps to CakePHP, Part 3
December 31, 2008 @ 12:58:33

Chris Hartjes continues his series looking at converting over legacy applications into a CakePHP environment with this third part, a focus on what can be one of the hardest parts - separating out business logic and presentation logic.

Anyway, onto other matters. As you saw in parts 1 and 2, a bug part in having a successful transition from legacy app to CakePHP is having an environment that is well suited to the use of a framework. Having laid out the groundwork for that switchover, it's time to talk about the part of a refactoring or porting that is most difficult: separating your business logic from your display logic.

He talks about fat models, skinny controllers and flexible views with some code to illustrate each. This method makes the models do most of the work while the controllers are more of a go-between for them and the views. The views, then, are pliable enough to work with whatever data might be thrown at them.
