Book Description
Object-Oriented PHP shows developers how to take advantage of the new object-oriented features of PHP. Working within the context of concrete examples, the book begins with code compatible with PHP 4 and 5, and then focuses on object-orientation in PHP 5. The author's practical approach uses numerous code examples, which will help developers get up to speed with object oriented PHP quickly, and show them how to apply what they learn to everyday situations. All code samples are available for download on the book's companion site.

From the Back Cover
It can be tough to learn the concepts of object-oriented programming with a language like C++. Fortunately, PHP's simple object model makes it an ideal language for learning about object-oriented programming.

For the uninitiated, this guide to the latest version of PHP offers a speedy introduction to object-oriented programming, including a thorough explanation of classes as well as coverage of constructors, destructors, inheritance, polymorphism, and interfaces. You’ll learn to:
• Promote code reuse by creating your own classes and using built-in classes
• Customize and improve classes through inheritance
• Simplify database access by developing MySQL database and result set classes
• Incorporate an RSS reader into your site using only four lines of code
• Use XML easily with an object-oriented approach
• Employ PHP to autogenerate documentation for your code
• Make thumbnail images on the fly
• Replace clumsy error trapping with exception handling
• Take full advantage of advanced OO features in PHP
• Incorporate AJAX into your OO PHP code

Object-Oriented PHP will show you how to maximize PHP’s features, with much less work than you might think. With Object-Oriented PHP, you can master the basics of object-oriented programming and get up to speed on PHP in one fell swoop.
