Hello guys.. does anyone of you have tried using cakephp?
You see i want to test something. I created an app on cakephp and I create a controller named testscontroller.php now inside that controller I have an action of echoMe() its something like this
class TestsController extends AppController {

  function echoMe(){

    echo "Hello";

As you can see I just want to echo something inside an action of my controller although i know that every action should have its own view... but what if i dont want to create a view. what i want is to have an action that will only do some processing but no view will return... so how will i achieved this? my problem is with my code it generates an error asking for a view.. but i don't want a view all i want is to echo it inside my action(for processing purpose).

To make things clear im doing an ajax request that calls the echoMe() action and inside that echo me i want to do a json_encode reply. but the problem is the reply is giving me the entire html file with an error that says /views/echoMe.ctp cannot be found... I dont want it to look for the view but instead i just want it to echo a value not the entire html document.

Hope you can help me guys... thanks
