Yet another modified class: updating the “Result” class - PHP

In this part of the series, you will see in detail an updated version of each class that composes the caching system, for a correct implementation in PHP 5. Also, the “Cache” class will be modified to work with an array processor class that handles array operations. It should help refresh your memory of techniques related to object-oriented programming.

As you may probably guess, the process for updating the “Result” class is pretty straightforward. Applying the same modifications introduced to the MySQL class, we end up defining the code for this class as follows:

class Result {
            private $mysql; // instance of MySQL object
            private $result; // result set
            // constructor
            public function __construct(&$mysql,$result){
            // fetch row
            public function fetchRow(){
                        return mysql_fetch_array($this-
            // count rows
            public function countRows(){
                                   throw new Exception('Error
counting rows');
                        return $rows;
            // count affected rows
            public function countAffectedRows(){
                                   throw new Exception('Error counting affected rows');
                        return $rows;
            // get ID from last inserted row
            public function getInsertID(){
                                   throw new Exception('Error
getting ID');
                        return $id;
            // seek row
            public function seekRow($row=0){
                                   throw new Exception('Error
seeking data');

Once again, I’ve explicitly defined the class’ member visibility, as well as delegated runtime error conditions by throwing exceptions within conflicting sections of the code. That way, either when fetching result rows or moving the result set’s internal pointer, potential errors are easily handled by an exception mechanism.

With the two above classes already updated to PHP 5, it’s time to look at the workhorse of the whole caching system: the “Cache” class. Let’s jump to the next section to find out how this class is properly updated.
