Can I duplicate class names?

#1

Hi,

I'm aiming to use the full MVC pattern, and adhere to the DRY principle.

I've got several different types of users including Public and Admin, and I've set up a directory for the controllers for each user type.

In some cases I want them to be able to do similar - but not identical - things. For example, in the case of user CRUD:

- Public can Add a user; while
- Admin can Add, List, Edit and Delete users.

I would like to name the controllers (and therefore the classes) the same. i.e.:

- controllers/public/users.php
- controllers/admin/users.php

Does this violoate any design principles?

I am making the controllers as light as possible, so any duplication (and DRY violation) will be minimal.

Your comments are much appreciated!

Kim

They can be named the same thing, they just can't both be instantiated at the same time.
