Generating PHP objects in 2006

written 4305 days ago

We’d like to start off this first post of 2006 by saying thank-you to everyone who’s used POG and still use it on a regular basis for their PHP projects. The POG project has been more successful than we could have ever hoped for and we intend to work even harder this year.

With over 200, 000 PHP objects generated since the project was launched 3 months ago, we’re getting the message that PHP developers embrace the idea of code generation, and this is highly motivating for us.

Things coming up in 2006:
The main event coming up this week is the release of POG 1.6. The PHP tutorials and history log have already been updated for this new version. We’re just ironing out some kinks before it’s released. POG 1.6 takes the code generating experience one step further by providing a Setup file that automates tasks the developer would normally perform after the objects are generated. Tasks such as database table-creation, unit testing and scaffolding are provided to the developer. You can even watch a 4-minute preview video of this process if you like.

In our ambitious goal to be the best PHP code generator, we listen to opinions and comments from all PHP developers, and one of our goals for 2006 is getting more feedback and increased communication with you. The POG Google group has been created for this purpose, and we’ll be spending more time there and we hope you do too.

After going back and re-reading the first-post posted on this blog, we realized that the goals we set for ourselves in the beginning are still as relevant, if not more. POG’s goal is still to generate code that takes away the boring and redundant portion of programming with PHP and databases. As we work to implement new features this year, we’ll always keep in mind our original intention of being first-and-foremost, a PHP code generator; Not a PHP framework. The simple reason for this is that we feel there are many good PHP frameworks out there but not many good code generators.

In brief, we’re very excited about PHP and web application development in 2006 and we hope more PHP developers out-there hear about us and give POG a try.


As mentioned in this article, the tutorials and documentation for POG seem to have been updated in anticipation of the next version because I did indeed notice that one section of the tutorials is inconsistent with the code generated by 1.5: The GetList() CRUD method (whose interface has changed from 1.5)

Instead of Get{objectname}List(), the CRUD method is now simply called by GetList(). For example:

Old Way (1.5)
$book->GetBookList(“bookid”, ”>”, 0);

New Way (1.6)
$book->GetList(array(array(“bookid”, ”>”, 0)));

This is the only anomaly I noticed in the documentation/tutorials and it shouldn’t be relevant once the main page is updated with 1.6.

Just thought I’d share.
