Hi Rakesh,

Completely converting phpMyAdmin to another system, be it 3-tier
architecture, MVC or something else, is out of scope for GSoC.

If want to apply for the OOP project of GSoC, you better focus on
converting a small part of the current phpMyAdmin code into a class.
Are you familiar with OOP? Do you know about Design patterns [0] and [1]?
You can get some inspiration for possible classes : [2]

BTW : Did you read the applicants guide [3], especially the part about
submitting a patch?

Good luck.

Kind regards,
