Liip Blog:
First Release of Proxy-Object
July 15, 2011 @ 11:06:34

On the Liip blog Bastian Feder has announced the first release of a tool that helps you proxy your objects (overlay them with a layer that exposes properties and methods) following the proxy object design pattern in PHP.

The outcome is this little library making it much easier to generate a proxy of your system under test (SUT). Another thought on this library was, that it should be very easy to use if you know the way to mock classes and methods in PHPUnit. Proxy-object has almost the same API, but does not change the behavior of the proxied class/method. The only purpose is to expose hidden methods and members.

The scripts, found on github, give you a simple way to define a proxy over a given class' functionality and define methods/member variables to be exposed. He includes two code examples, one of each type. There's also an example of making the proxy object without calling the constructor, useful in certain cases when the initialization of the object doesn't need to happen.

You can also find out more about the usage of this tool in this new post to Bastian's blog.
