Every database table in phoenix will be separated to two MVC groups. One is singular item and another is plural list.
Every MVC group has it's own Model/View/Controller. For example, a table named:
sakuras, we will use
to modify single item record, and a
Sakuras Controller to handle multiple items operation like
A Singular MVC group, used to handle CRUD of single record, with an edit or single item page.
Edit page means a page with form and inputs to send data for update an item.

CrudModel has only
save() method instead
The save() method will determine that if data has primary key, it will use update process, if data has no primary key, then model will use create process.

Method Controller Mapping
In Windwalker, we use this mapping to call controller.
It's more simpler to write your logic because you can use the exists of primary key to make create or update action.
Grid & List Controller
In phoenix, we use this mapping to map list controller:
|GET||GetController||Show grid UI|
|POST||CopyController||Batch copy items|
|PUT||UpdateController||Batch update items|
|PATCH||Controller||Filter & search|
