An experienced developer gives us this great article with insight into a collection of patterns we can use to design our systems at a high level. This includes code for the patterns, and practical advice on choosing which is a good fit for your applicationcomment save report are you sure? yes no
One feature of PHP rarely seen in production code is PHP Iterators. Iterators are not unique to PHP, as Java and C++ have them, but they are a powerful mechanism to increase code usability. A very useful feature of PHP Iterators is the ability to extend them to iterate over any type of array or object. A unique implementation of PHP Iterators is to quickly and easily iterate over a result from a SQL query against a database. This provides a fast and very memory efficient implementation for loading up many objects.comment save report are you sure? yes no
Namespaces are one of the most significant changes in PHP 5.3. They will be familiar to C# and Java developers, and they are likely to change the structure of PHP applications for the better. [...] Name collision problems can be solved with namespaces. PHP constants, classes, and functions can be grouped into namespaced librariescomment save report are you sure? yes no
Object oriented programming was introduced for the first time in PHP 3. But the subjects is extremely actual again in PHP 5, because the entire concept of the OOP(Object Oriented Programming) was in fact redesigned from scratch for the new version of the language (PHP 5). Hence, this tutorial would be interesting for the advanced user familiar with PHP 4 and as well for the beginners, since we will try to use more "understandable" words and examples comprehensive enough to express the real power of the object oriented programming.comment save report are you sure? yes no
Why are there so many examples of bloated PHP methods out there?! I see a lot of bloated methods being used in examples through sites like phpclasses.org and a very large chunk of a project I’ve recently picked up which a few developers have worked on. Guys! remember! There is no good reason to bloat your methods to over 10-20 lines long and on the rare occasions that you do exceed 10 - 20 lines it would be more the exception to the rule as opposed to being the rule itself!comment save report are you sure? yes no
The Singleton Pattern is often mistakenly referred to as the OOP nuts "Global variable".
Classes that utilise the Singleton Pattern aims to have a single instance throughout the lifetime of the request/process.
There seems to be a common pitfall among some PHP developers--especially those just beginning PHP programming--and that is their lack of object-oriented (OO) PHP use. This article's purpose is to inform developers about the practicality of OO PHP; fully understanding the benefits of using OO PHP should be a requirement in the PHP learning process.comment save report are you sure? yes no
This tutorial introduces CakePHP, by walking you through setting up a simple blog and, later, adding advanced blogging features. You will learn how to make Cake map data from database records into data structures which you can present in your application.comment save report are you sure? yes no
Design patterns are just for Java? architects -- at least that's what you may have been led to believe. In fact, design patterns are useful for everyone. If these tools aren't exclusive to architecture astronauts, what are they, and why are they useful in PHP applications? This article explains.comment save report are you sure? yes no
Quite simply, the controller handles incoming requests. It uses input, in this case from the URI, to load a module and refresh/render the presentation layer. The controller for the aptly named Framework 1.0 uses a few GET arguments to figure out which module to load.comment save report are you sure? yes no
This tutorial is the second in a series dealing with using objects to create an application -- building the application up from smaller parts -- and teaching important software engineering and design concepts that will be useful writing not only in PHP, but in other languages as well.comment save report are you sure? yes no
The MVC pattern very commonly used in constructing web applications. The principle allows us to construct 3-tier applications, allowing us useful layers of seperation in our code, and helping both designers and developers to cooperate as well enhancing our ability to maintain and expand on existing applications.comment save report are you sure? yes no
This article is about using and building Database Interfaces (DB interfaces). DB interfaces make application development faster and easier. This is accomplished by relocating scattered DML (Insert, Update, Delete) statements into a single shared tool, the Class. A Class encapsulates data post processing, integrity, and security into a single tool that can be accessed throughout the application.comment save report are you sure? yes no
