PHP & System Design Methodologies

Hello everybody, hope everything is fine here...

i have a question about system analysis and design for web apps using PHP.
I know how to analyse and design using RUP methodology only for OO apps. But now i need to extend this methodology to develop web apps with PHP. I know that PHP support OOP but i dont really think if i need it. Its a simple dynamic web app what i am trying right now to develop.

So, should i see my app as an OOP app and design it using standard RUP method or can i achieve it defferently? Is there any other methodology that can help me on this? What about WebML? Any good tutorial?

i ve searched a lot on the web but i cant find a good starting tutorial to help me understand.. Can i extend RUP to support PHP dynamic web site development??

What are you Web Developers using?? Do you know what is the most working methodology on the Web Development Industry?

THank you in advance everyone..
Greeting from Hellas.

If you are going to use OO then a UML style approach would work. In web design one approach that is often used is the MVC pattern. You might want to read about that pattern and then find a framework that supports it. Then do your design around that pattern.

all right thank you for your answer graemef.

So i ve searched about MVC and turned out that is the best approach to use for web development but still i cant find some guidelines to show me the path.

So far i have done a lot of system planning and analysis for my project, i have my Database written, i have also wrote all my Use Cases i am going to need. And some System Sequence Diagrams. But now what? How to continue from here to end up in a good code structure, followed by the MVC pattern?

i am confused and the think is that i cant stop thinking like i will have to develop a Windows platform OO app. This is different and i want to start thinking for developing web app in the right way.

Could you guide me from here on? what should i do next? How to continue?
