Why Use a Framework?

(1/2) > >>

chinmay.sahoo:
In almost all the non-trivial projects I have built, I have had to make the decision about whether I should use an existing framework or write my own. You may not think that those are the only two options. You may think that your project doesn’t need a framework for whatever reason. However, in most non-trivial applications, you will end up building something that resembles a framework. Most of the time it starts out by combining similar code from different areas of the project to simplify maintenance. Before you knowit you have a database abstraction layer, base classes, abstract classes, and eventually, you’ve got yourself a framework. So in reality, it really does boil down to just those two choices. When you look at it in that light and assuming your project is non-trivial, the “Why” becomes apparent. You use a pre-existing framework to save you the time and hassle of having write one yourself.

EugeneHill:
A framework is not necessary for development  Frameworks are tools that help you to code better and faster! because a framework provides you with the certainty that you are developing an application that is in full compliance with the business rules, that is structured, and that is both maintainable and upgradable.

Happy Coding..!!!

A framework is not absolutely necessary: it is “just” one of the tools that is available to help you develop better and faster!

Better, because a framework provides you with the certainty that you are developing an application that is in full compliance with the business rules, that is structured, and that is both maintainable and upgradable.

Faster, because it allows developers to save time by re-using generic modules in order to focus on other areas. Without, however, ever being tied to the framework itself.
