An Intro to Virtual Proxies, Part 2
Apr 26, 2012 @ 09:24:23

Following up on his previous article, Alejandro Gervasio has a new post to PHPMaster.com with the second part of his series on using virtual proxies in PHP.

Resting on the foundation of Polymorphism (dynamic Polymorphism, not the ad-hoc one often achieved through plain method overriding), Virtual Proxies are a simple yet solid concept which allows you to defer the construction/loading of expensive object graphs without having to modify client code.

He shows how to create a collection of domain objects that use proxies to populate their data. He includes the code for creating a "Post" interface/object as well as a Comment interface/object. These are put into a "CommentCollection" and, when it's accessed, pull the item in the collection out, only populating the data on demand.

Building proxies, decorators and delegates in PHP5
Jul 03, 2006 @ 19:54:13

Ivo Jansch today gives an excellent look on proxies, decorators and delegates; three popular desigh patterns.

In PHP5, you can define methods in an object for intercepting calls to methods of an object and for intercepting access to object member variables. These methods (__get, __set and __call) enable the implementation of very generic proxies, decorators and delegators.

This is a great introduction to these three patterns and how to implement them in PHP
