In this ninth part of the series, I add an extensible model class to the framework. This class can be used for running CRUD operations against a selected MySQL database table.

In this second part of a five-part series on strings and regular expressions in PHP, you'll learn about regular expression functions and a variety of string-specific functions. This article is excerpted from chapter nine of the book Beginning PHP and Oracle: From Novice to Professional, written by W. Jason Gilmore and Bob Bryla (Apress; ISBN: 1590597702).

In this eighth part of the series, I add to our example MVC-based framework another crucial component. In this case, it's a class that parses data usually injected from a controller and rendered in the form of HTML pages.

In this seventh part of the series, I add a cache class to the classes that comprise the MVC-based framework we're building. The new class uses the file system as the underlying backend for caching data, but it’s also possible to create one that caches data on shared memory, a SQLite database and so forth. Indeed, numerous possibilities exist.

In this sixth part of the series, I finish building a basic HTML form helper class. Doing this adds yet another important component to the sample MVC-driven framework we're developing in this group of tutorials.

Strings and regular expressions are among the basic tools that help programmers get their jobs done. This five-part article series covers how these are used in PHP. It is excerpted from chapter nine of the book Beginning PHP and Oracle: From Novice to Professional, written by W. Jason Gilmore and Bob Bryla (Apress; ISBN: 1590597702).

Submitting XML sitemaps to Google Webmaster Tools is an important webmaster activity. Google recommends using it to help it find new content in your website which otherwise cannot be crawled by Googlebot. This is particularly helpful if you have a fairly large website. In this article, you'll learn how to generate such a sitemap with PHP.

In this fifth episode of the series, I start building an HTML form helper class to add to this sample MVC framework the ability to render some basic form elements.

In this fourth part of the series, I show you how to provide this sample MVC-driven framework with the ability to sanitize user input by way of a basic input class.

In this second part of the series, I add another crucial component to this example MVC-driven framework. It's a basic router/dispatcher class. While the incorporation of this brand new module turns the framework into a more functional piece of code, there are other components that still need to be developed.

In this first part of a series, I develop the first module of a model-view-controller (MVC) driven framework, which happens to be a front controller. By combining this component and a basic .htaccess file, it’s possible to route all HTTP requests to the (still-undefined) dispatcher class.

Late Static Bindings (LSB), a powerful feature bundled with PHP 5.3, are much easier to master than you might think. Achieving intimate knowledge of them requires only an average background in working with objects and classes. This article concludes a six-part series that shows you what you can do with LSB.

In this fifth part of a six-part series on late static bindings, I define some sample classes which are responsible for creating some block-level (X)HTML objects, such as simple divs and paragraphs. Once we get these classes up and running, we'll be ready to test the factories created in the previous part and see if they’re actually as functional as they look.
| || 05-24-10 || ||Alejandro Gervasio ||12431 |
In this fourth part of the series, I demonstrate how Late Static Bindings can be useful for implementing the abstract factory design pattern. The feature will be used at the instance level within the constructor of an abstract factory class, where at least one of its concrete implementations is tasked with factoring a couple of block-level (X)HTML objects, such as divs and paragraphs.

In this third part of a series on late static bindings, you will learn how to use the “get_called_class()” function bundled with PHP 5.3 for determining at runtime which class has been called in a static context. In certain situations this function can be used as a replacement for late static bindings, but LSB has a wider range of possible uses; keep this in mind when developing your own object-oriented applications.
