Naming Files and Designing the Database


In the previous chapter, I discussed how Cake was able to wrap some standard web functionality around the database structure to produce a to-do list application. Although you could change some things in the application to improve the user experience, overall Cake handles the typical operations of adding, deleting, editing, and viewing records in the database without much code. This is possible because of an important aspect of Cake: convention. Because you followed Cake’s conventions when naming and setting up the database table, when creating the model and controller files, and when entering the URL in the browser to run the application, Cake was able to piece together your various operations and deliver a handy web program in little time.
