Routing

Routing is a very essential part of a Web Application. CogentPHP has an simple yet elegant way of handling routing.

We are going to explain this With an Example.

- accountController.php

<?php

/** Autoloading The required Classes **/

use Core\Core\C_Base;
use Core\Core\Redirect;

class IndexController extends C_Base
  {
  	function __construct( $tile )
  	{
      /** Loading the corresponding Model class **/
  		$this->model = new $tile;
  	}

  	public function index()
  	{
      /** Initializing a index.html view Found in (Views/index.html) **/
      Init::view('index');
  	}

		public function pay()
  	{
      /** Initializing a index.html view Found in (Views/index.html) **/
      Init::view('index');
  	}

		public function withdraw()
  	{
      /** Initializing a index.html view Found in (Views/index.html) **/
      Init::view('index');
  	}

}
 ?>

To generate URL from the Above controller, We have

localhost/account/
	The URL Maps to accountController -> index()
	Since no Method is Specified in URL, It maps it to index method by default.

localhost/account/pay
 	This URL Maps to accountController -> pay()
localhost/account/withdraw
 	This URL Maps to accountController -> withdraw()
localhost/account/begin
 	This results in a 404 error, Because the method begin() doesn't exist in the Class


The URL is Case Insensitive as:

accountController -> withdrawMoney() ==

1. localhost/account/withdrawmoney
2. localhost/account/withdrawMoney

	They Both Evaluate to the same Method
