Hi Paul, As I agree some of your thoughts, I want to add my opinion also. Yes the code should work. That is why we earn Money. If it doesnt work, then we are on fire. But things like OOP or MVC weren't invented for a better running code. They are invented so the codes will going to be much more clean, readable, reusable, maintainable. "Running codes" is not enough.
Eric asked about how his MVC structure looks. And we are trying to help what we know about MVC. He didn't asked if the code is fine for running. So giving an answer "The real key is, does it work, and can it be maintained" is not enough and not really helpful to him on MVC concept. If you need just a running and maintainable project, you don't need to use MVC (MVC is not all about that). We are not criticizing his code(the code is really fine(except injection problem :-) ) and very readable) Eric, As Martin said, All the business logic should be in Model. Controller should not tell a model "Save it to this database, select it from this table, use this db_adapter" etc. A controller is like a maestro of the system. It askes the model to play piano loud. But it wont say which key of piano, the model should touch. I suggest you to read this online book about Zend Framework and MVC. Its really really very helpful to understand the concept. Also example codes are very clean and good. http://www.survivethedeepend.com/zendframeworkbook/en/1.0 Take Care, Mert (sorry for my english) -----Original Message----- From: Paul M Foster [mailto:pa...@quillandmouse.com] Sent: Wednesday, October 07, 2009 7:54 PM To: firstname.lastname@example.org Subject: Re: [PHP] Insult my code!

Beware of people who criticize your code on purely academic criteria. There are a lot of differing opinions about MVC, much of it driven by people making academic points versus people who actually code for a living. Even some people who actually code for a living fall under the spell of academic rules about this or that. The real key is, does it work, and can it be maintained. If so, don't worry about people who argue esoteric points about what should or shouldn't be in models and controllers, etc. Paul -- Paul M.
