I have worked with Cakephp framework but frankly speaking still wonder when and how to follow the MVC rules./ Specially “Fat Models and Skinny Controllers” as i am in continuous concern that will not the recon cause the Model to get fat than i will be chop off from the Model.
I came across a great article Another way to think about MVC | nuts and bolts of cakephp on the MVC model giving at least a really nice way to remember and understand some of the rules and concepts of MVC.
Dah! so now we know what to do. But still need some answers will be that how much it will affect the performance and in what conditions can we break the rules.
