Hey Parasnath,

Design Doc! I don't think that it depends upon the PHP or the Joomla.
It depends upon the Object's Flow in an Application.

For an web application "WireFrame" does a lot than any other specification document, than Flow Chart of Users.

Rest depends upon you!

Regards,
Nirbhab

Hi Nirbhab,
Thanks for reply. Yes, you are right that design docs doesn't depend on ant technology. What i mean to write is , is there any specific methodology used by joomla developers or there is nothing like this.

I don't think so...Me as a developer follow my own way to develop things...while other will/might have there own was to develop.

Document just help developers to understand and be on track about the deliverable.
