Joomla! MVC Classes for Backend Development

1. Goal:

Provide base classes for model, view and controller helping joomla backend development.

2. How to use:

During backend development prepare the folder strucuture in this way:

Place the 3 files (jmodellesd.php, jviewlesd.php and jcontrollerlesd.php) 
inside the "libs" folder.

Create your MVC classes extending the classes JModelLesd, JViewLesd and 
JControllerLesd instead of Joomla! base classes.

About the JModelLesd class:

You need to set the $_filter_field property with the name of the field for 

Example of model class:
defined('_JEXEC') or die();
require_once( JPATH_COMPONENT.DS.'libs'.DS.'jmodellesd'.'.php' );
class MyextensionModelExamples extends JModelLesd
	function __construct()
	 $this->_filter_field = 'name';
About the JViewLesd class:

The class work with 2 templates: 
default.php - for presenting the data grid with pagination, order and filter fields  
form.php - form for edit or add records 
( see the example files )

Example of View Class:

defined( '_JEXEC' ) or die( 'Restricted access' );
require_once( JPATH_COMPONENT.DS.'libs'.DS.'jviewlesd'.'.php' );
class MyextensionViewExamples extends JViewLesd	{
About the JControllerLesd class:

Example of controller class:

defined( '_JEXEC' ) or die( 'Restricted access' );
require_once( JPATH_COMPONENT.DS.'libs'.DS.'jcontrollerlesd'.'.php' );
class MyextensionControllerExamples extends JControllerLesd {


There is no controller outside the "controllers" folder. 
The entry point (hello.php) of the extension handle the default controller.
