In the Getting Started guide, I've shown you how to use VFP's data language to create cursors and then display that data. This works well, but it's not really great application design and most applications do or should use business object for the data access.
In this guide, we'll take a more disciplined approach and I'll demonstrate how to use business objects using the wwBusiness class to manage your business logic and using a Model, View, Controller (MVC) based HTML rendering approach that separates your code from your HTML markup by using Scripts and Templates.
