POG source code locations

written 4992 days ago

If all you want is generate php code and be on your way, don’t worry about this article. Use POG as usual, nothing to worry about.

However, if you’re a POG enthusiast interested in extending/improving POG or installing the code generator on your own machine, you can access the POG source code either from:

  1. the POG Sourceforge project page
  2. the POG Subversion Repository (username:guest, no password)

The main difference between the 2 repositories is that we generally update the code on Sourceforge only when there’s a significant release.

The Subversion repository, on the other hand, is updated more regularly and contains the latest revision of POG. If you want the latest and greatest and don’t mind if things haven’t been tested fully, then the subversion code is for you.

To download from Subversion, you’ll need svn (for most Unix-based systems, including OS X), or Tortoise SVN (Windows)

To download the sourcecode using svn
svn—username guest export path-to-your-directory-for-pog

To download the sourcecode using Tortoise
In Windows Explorer, right-click on a directory, and select TortoiseSVN->Export
For URL of repository, use
(username:guest, no password)

The file index3.php does not appear to be finished:

The line that reads:
$data = file_get_contents("./configuration_factory/configuration.".$pdoDriver.".php");

Probably should read:

$data = file_get_contents("./configuration_factory/configuration.". $_SESSION['pdoDriver'].".php");

I checked out the svn repository because I could not get the setup and object directories inclued in the zip file as the tutorial describes.

Also, i noticed, the section “Manage objects” in the setup doesn’t handle medium_text and long_text. This would be really neat, I think I can add that.

Cool app anyways :)

Thanks Vegard. Incidentally, this fix has already been made but hadn’t been checked in. Now it has.

You’re correct: currently, the tutorials are valid for version 1.6 which can be accessed at The beta subdomain is updated from the svn repository daily.

Finally, we’re redesigning the Manage objects section in the setup process right now, and that’s why 1.6 hasn’t been released yet. The main deficiency of the current design is that it does not scale well enough with large objects.

Anyways, thanks for the feedback. We appreciate it.

Great job.

BTW The sourceforge project page seems to still only have the 2.1.0 release

Andrej    Aug 28, 03:19 PM    #

sourceforge is only updated when major versions are released. e.g. 2.1, 2.2

minor versions can be obtained from SVN

Maybe you can add the default values for the fields, and then set this default values in the arguments of the constructor.

Really nice work,
Best Regards,

Hey, this is a very nice idea well executed. My one issue with it is that the code is completely susceptible to SQL injection attacks and is therefore quite insecure (in my view).

A great improvement would be to bind parameters to prepared SQL statements to ensure that injections can’t occur.

I have been trying to set POG in XAMPP so that I can generate objects when I am not connected to the internet. I disabled the phpsoap extension and modified the pog.wsdl so that it would go to my local machine. What am I doing wrong?
