Bradley Holt's Blog:
Immutable Value Objects in PHP
October 01, 2010 @ 11:15:40

Bradley Holt has a new post to his blog about a subject he's recently been learning about, Domain-Driven Design, and how immutable value objects could be useful in PHP.

Yesterday I tweeted: Modern object-oriented programming languages need support for immutable Value Objects. #DDD The "DDD" in that tweet stands for Domain-Driven Design. There were several interesting responses to this tweet.

Responses to his tweet included comments from Matthew Weier O'Phinney, Ralph Schindler, Nicolas Berard-Nault and Giorgio Sironi. He notes that, while all of the suggestions are good, they're only half of the issue. They make it immutable when defined but not during execution. Currently PHP lacks this functionality, but something like this could be worked in with the concept of a "final" class.
