Create Service Class in PHP with Zend Framework

Posted on the 31 July 2012 by Akahgy

Description:

Communicate between modules in MCV architecture like PhP’s Zend Framework.

Solution:

Communication between modules, in MCV architecture should not be done directly by calling the model class, but accessing a service class assigned to the model.

A service class represents the mirror image of the original model class.

Name of class: class ModuleName_Service_ClassName

Parameters: private $_model;

Methods: protected function _getModel()

After this previous requirements the model methods are described, just with function name and return value.

Example:

class Customer_Service_Address {

  private $_model;

  protected function _getModel() {
  $this->_model = new Customer_Model_Address();
  return $this->_model;
  }

  public function updatePostcode($postcode) {
  return $this->_getModel()->updatePostcode($postcode);
  }

}
