I many years working with CakePHP, but now need to create a high traffic restful backend for mobile applications. At this point Phalcon frameworks seems the best choice for me.
What I have not figured out is equivalent to CakePHP Containable Behavior http://book.cakephp.org/2.0/en/core-libraries/behaviors/containable.html
which is ideal for what I need. My requests are searching for data across six models with different conditions. Okay, I know I can do that with several different queries, but you may have a smarter solution?
