Create a Drupal Module from CakePHP Application?

I've got a CakePHP application sitting in my Drupal (7) web directory. No integration, just had to get it up.

But ideally, I would want to bake the CakePHP app into the site, via a Drupal Module.

Is that the right approach?

Or should I simply allow the CakePHP app be used via an iFrame on a Drupal page, giving the sense that's its part of the site?

What's the best approach? And how to go about it?

This is highly dependent on the content and nature of the CakePHP application, although I would suspect that you'd want to rewrite the app using Drupal's API. In fact, you'd pretty much have to rewrite it if you want it to be a Drupal module.

You may also be able to integrate the app with Drupal by using the Services module or some other method (e.g. REST). Drupal can interface with external applications that way, and it's relatively simple if you know how to create the other half in Cake.

That said, if it's a complicated application, then personally, I'd probably use the iframe. But that also depends on timeframe and budget.

I'm sorry I can't be of more help!

Cheers,
