    Hi all I have been googgling endlessly around and could not find the definitive answer to this question:
    What is the difference between a Content Managenent System and a web application framework (in purpose, functionality and role).
    I would like to know if it is indispensable to use the two when setting up a dynamic website and if that's the case, how do the two relate to each other in the system. Otherwise is it SUFFICIENT to use just one to set up a dynamic application?

    I would like to build a dynamic website and I would like to know if the following logical steps are correct to achieve that:

    1) Decide which framework to use (this was before I read about the CMS thing) along with the coding language.

    2) Design the sit e (UML)

    3) Write down the code according to the framework decided in 1)

    4) If local tests are conclusive (including a local server for testing purposes on the same machine), look out for a web host and ship the site online.
    :rolleyes:

    Thanks to correct me if I am wrong.

    An application frmework is something which we use to build our web application on, I mean we use the framework provided classes, events, methods and create an application.

    A CMS is already a developed application with a set of features, however most of them are coded in such a way that users can tweak them aroound and modify the code to fit their own needs.

    So a framework does not come with a working application, but a CMS comes with one.

    Guys do you agree?
