    Default Application Architecture Question

    Application Architecture Question


    Hello everyone,

    I'm looking for some advice on how to approach an applications architecture for my front end.

    What I would like to know is how you handle multiple forms for an application; for instance if you have multiple forms do you:

    1. Separate each forms javascript definition into individual files and include them in a single page (index.html) with a singleton pattern to load each form when required?

    2. Separate each form into individual pages (login.html, logout.html, etc ...) with their own javascript definitions?

    Can anyone make a good recommendation on an example I could learn from?

    Cheers in advance,
    Timothy

    I download each form/window as I need it. My php creates the form, localizing it, and modifying any structure as needed. I then send down the config statement for the form as json (with some javascript handlers - so not pure json). I have a zend framework library I am developing that makes the interface easy between the php server and client javascript.

    Hmm, I don't have any backend engine that will be generating javascript other then json data. What if I wanted to build all of my forms in individual javascript files and include them all on page load, instantiate when needed?

    I'm also waiting to see if anyone has a good directory structure for javascript files.

    Cheers,
    Timothy
