Been reading a lot php stuff lately, mostly from phpbuilder site. Found several interesting articles about building apps using OO.

Somehow managed to figure out the framework of phpGroupware. Was amazed at the variety of features it already has, even thought about joining there group and start building on top of it. Unfortunately, there was something I noticed that made me decide not to join.

So, after realizing it, the decision was made to just take some of the good code and style and merge it to the ones I found.

One interesting idea was to port the legacy app and pull out the business rules into a set of php classes. Then take the data access classes that I found in one of the articles and stuff it into the directory. Then create new classes for the presentation layer. It's basically a method we implemented a couple of months ago for a project. It would be interesting if these techniques were implemented in php. That would be challenging though.
