PHP Objects 2.1.0 (preview)

written 4737 days ago

Over the next few days, we will update the PHP Code Generator with the latest version (2.1.0).

This release fixes a few bugs and improves POG Setup (video here) markedly with better unit tests and better test logic, to give the PHP developer more assurance that the POG-generated objects are working correctly. Specifically, POG Setup now performs the following tasks:

1. Verify File Structure.
2. Verify Configuration Info
3. Verify Storage Status
4. Verify Object Status (Part 1- Essentials)
5. Verify Object Status (Part 2- Relations)

1. Verify File Structure
During this step, POG Setup verifies that objects are in an ”/objects” folder and that all the required files exist. (configuration.php, class.database.php etc.)

2. Verify Configuration Info
Setup then tries to connect to the database using the information provided in the configuration file. If a connection cannot be established, an error is returned.

3. Verify Storage Status
Setup then analyzes all the objects in the /objects folder and verifies that all objects have a corresponding table in the database. If the tables do not exist, Setup will create them. If the table columns do not match the object attributes, Setup will align the tables accordingly.

4. Verify Object Status (Part 1- Essentials)
Setup then performs the essential unit tests that verify that each of the 5 essential CRUD method (see POG Essentials) work.

5. Verify Object Status (Part 2- Relations)
Finally Setup tests for any connected objects. First it verifies that all Parents have Children and vice-versa. Next it performs the Object Relations unit tests on all generated objects.

Finally, one other improvements is we implemented a basic authentication system to POG Setup. A while back, we suggested using an htaccess file to prevent access to the POG Setup folder. In POG 2.1.0, Setup can be password protected from within the configuration file, for added security.

POG 2.1.0 can be previewed, as usual, at
