www.brainvire.com | © 2013 Brainvire Infotech Pvt. Ltd Page 4 of 4 Architecture The design approach was built around PHP and MySQL Server due to the social networking nature of the website. Modules like User Profiles, Invitations, Forums and Blogs were developed in PHP such that they can be executed directly from the UI layer. In order to most effectively access the database in an object-oriented context, an interface translating the object logic to the relational logic was used to communicate with the relational databases in an object-oriented manner. An intermediary abstraction layer was created for accessing data from the 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. Sub-domains were used for the different areas of the website to guarantee scalability. Development Highlights The sturdy architecture was equipped with an exhaustive yellow pages database to fulfill the business networking aspect of the site. The optimized database was synergized with superior query features to offer accurate results through comprehensive search & browse options. Category-based and location-centric searches were enhanced by the inclusion of Google Maps and image-accompanied reviews. The site employed numerous user and service ranking tactics to encourage user participation and ensure the authenticity of reviews. Extensive bidding options provided by the site helped users to locate the best services for cheap. Besides the integration of coupons systems, the site was equipped with numerous video options for supporting video reviews of services. 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 5 months.
