Introducing PHP Object Generator version 1.6

written 4108 days ago

We’ve just released POG 1.6 and updated the homepage with this new version. For the list of changes, take a look at the history log. As a refresher: a quick way to determine which version of POG you’re using, is to look at the title bar of your web browser:

PHP code generator - version information

The main improvement in this latest version is that POG now generates a SETUP script along with your objects.

What is POG?

PHP code generator - What is POG? POG generates PHP objects with integrated CRUD methods to dramatically accelerate web application development in PHP. POG allows developers to easily map object attributes onto columns of a database table without having to write SQL queries.



What is POG Setup?

PHP code generator - What is POG Setup? You’ve generated one or more objects using Php Object Generator … Now what? POG SETUP is an answer to this question and takes the POG experience one step further. The Setup process automates table creation, unit testing and provides a light scaffolding environment for your objects.

We’ve also made a video that shows how POG and POG Setup help accelerate web application development. As we produce more tutorial videos, we’ll add them to our videos section, so check back often. Click the image below to download the video:

The best way to understand and use the improved features of POG is, we believe, to give POG a try yourself. So, go ahead, start generating some objects and see for yourself what POG is all about. If you have questions, issues or comments, there’s always the newly updated POG tutorials. You can also post your question/comment to the POG Google Group.

A few reasons why you should be using POG 1.6

  1. POG is easier to understand, more flexible and has an almost zero learning curve compared to any PHP framework out there. PHP frameworks come and go, whereas POG will be relevant as long as you plan to use an Object Oriented architecture in your application.
  2. The new Setup process is really cool. The setup process helps you get started even faster by creating all the tables for your objects. Setup also helps you during the whole lifecycle of your application by providing Unit tests and a diagnostic/debugging interface to your objects.
  3. The generated code is even cleaner than before. We’ve put a large amount of effort to generate the cleanest code possible without impacting performance. While a very small fraction of PHP frameworks out-there provide code-generation, they are nowhere near POG in terms of code cleanliness and quality.

Some other neat improvements:

  1. Better compatibility for code generated for PHP 5.1 & PDO
  2. Yet cleaner and more consistent code
  3. GetList() orders list automatically by Id
  4. GetList() allows multiple conditions
  5. Performance improvements
  6. Improved compatibility with Opera
  7. Better naming of generated objects
  8. Minor bug fixes

Sincerely,
The POG Development Team


Thank you for such a great utility!
