Note to developers


Module architecture is decomposed like this (look PHP Doc in ordertaxprofitreport class):
- conf/
- common: used by all conf. Defines main path and globals variables
- admin: only used in admin context
- install: only used in install context
- lib/install
- i-install.php (interface)
- install-ctrl_class.php (controller = design pattern «factory»)
- install-sql_class.php classes (installation «business» class)
- install-config_class.php classes (installation «business» class)
- install-tab_class.php classes (installation «business» class)
- lib/admin
- i-admin.class.php (interface)
- admin-ctrl.class.php (controller = design pattern «factory»)
- admin-display_class.php and admin-update_class.php and admin-export_class.php classes (configuration «business» classes)
- lib/module-dao_class.php => D.A.O (Data Access Object) manage SQL queries
- lib/module-tools_class.php => contains all transverse function
- lib/warnings_class.php => set warnings managed by Prestashop while module installation isn’t configured yet.

- templates/
- admin/ => templates used only for back office (and admin tab)





Each «business» class used in «lib/admin» have to return associative array :
‘tpl’ => template name to be used
‘assign’ smarty assigned values

In this way, displayModule() function aggregates all displaying .
