Other big programming languages support them Introduced in PHP 5.3 – Two years ago Modern Next Gen Frameworks  (Symfony 2.0, Zend Framework 2.0 and others) Job market demands it Use it or loose it
WHAT ARE THEY ?
Abstract container created to hold a logical grouping of unique identifiers. Unique identifiers are names. (in practice: classes, functions, constants) Each identifier is associated with the namespace where it is defined.

Namespace Separator
 
PEAR Naming Convention  R.I.P. No more clever workaround for lack of namespace support No more very long function and class names R.I.P. Poor man's namespacing

100% PURE NAMESPACES No supplements – Pure Power
The container space is created per file at the absolute top <?php namespace Nbeollection; <?php declare(encoding='UTF-8'); namespace Nbeollection; <?php /** * @namespace */ namespace Nbeollection;
The container space is created per file at the absolute top <?php namespace Nbeollection; <?php declare(encoding='UTF-8'); namespace Nbeollection; <?php /** * @namespace */ namespace Nbeollection;
The container space is created per file at the absolute top <?php namespace Nbeollection; <?php declare(encoding='UTF-8'); namespace Nbeollection; <?php /** * @namespace */ namespace Nbeollection;
Mixing Container Spaces per file <?php namespace Nbeodel; const LIBRARY_PATH = '/www/libs/Nbe'; class AbstractModel { /* ... */ } function draw() { /* ... */  } namespace NbeZf; const LIBRARY_PATH = '/www/libs/NbeZf'; class AbstractModel { /* ... */ } function sayHello() { /* ... */  } <?php namespace Nbeodel { const LIBRARY_PATH = '/www/libs/Nbe'; class AbstractModel { /* ... */ } function draw() { /* ... */  } } namespace { const APP_PATH = '/www/libs/NbeZf'; function __autoload() { /* ... */  } }
Mixing Container Spaces per file <?php namespace Nbeodel; const LIBRARY_PATH = '/www/libs/Nbe'; class AbstractModel { /* ... */ } function draw() { /* ... */  } namespace NbeZf; const LIBRARY_PATH = '/www/libs/NbeZf'; class AbstractModel { /* ... */ } function sayHello() { /* ... */  } <?php namespace Nbeodel { const LIBRARY_PATH = '/www/libs/Nbe'; class AbstractModel { /* ... */ } function draw() { /* ... */  } } namespace { const APP_PATH = '/www/libs/NbeZf'; function __autoload() { /* ... */  } }
Common Mistakes <?php namespace  be ; // rest of code Fatal error: Undefined constant 'Nbe' <?php namespace Nbe; class  Interface  {} <?php namespace Nbe; class  Abstract  {} Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_INTERFACE Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ABSTRACT
Different name types Fully Qualified Name NbeodelbstractModel Qualified Name ModelbstractModel Unqualified Name AbstractModel
Autoloading namespaces function __autoload($class) { require_once str_replace( '',  DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR,  $class ) . '.php'; } new beZfodelser() maps to NbeZfodelser require_once NbeZf/Model/User.php
Autoloading namespaces <?php namespace Nbeoader; function autoLoader($className) { require_once str_replace('', IRECTORY_SEPARATOR, $className) . '.php'; } <?php require 'Nbe/Loader/autoloader.php'; spl_autoload_register('NbeLoaderautoloader'); $user = new Nbentityser();
Resolving namespace calls <?php namespace Nbe; class Model {} $model = new Model(); echo get_class($model); Output: NbeModel <?php namespace Nbe; function model() { return __FUNCTION__; } echo model(); Output: Nbeodel
Resolving namespace calls <?php namespace Nbe; class Model {} $model = new Model(); echo get_class($model); Output: Nbeodel <?php namespace Nbe; function model() { return __FUNCTION__; } echo model(); Output: Nbeodel
Consequences <?php namespace Nbe; $collection = new ArrayObject(); Fatal error:  Class  'NberrayObject'  not found <?php namespace Nbe; $collection = new  ArrayObject(); Indicate global namespace with a single backslash <----
Function fallbacks happen at Runtime <?php namespace Nbe; var_dump(explode(';', ' some;cool;words '));
Warning system functions within namespaces – Procedural Code <?php namespace WackyCode; ar_dump( explode(';', 'some;cool;words')); Don't override system functions Or explicitly call global space FULLY QUALIFIED NAMES Compile time <---- <?php namespace WackyCode; function explode($separator, $string) { // do some freaky stuff }
(Procedural) Constants fallbacks <?php namespace Nbe { echo E_ERROR; }
(Procedural) Constants fallbacks <?php namespace Nbe { E_ERROR = 10; } <?php namespace Nbe { echo E_ERROR; } <?php namespace Nbe { echo _ERROR; } Do not override system constants or Explicitly call global space Fully quaylified names, compile time
 
Fully Qualified Name Compile Time Qualified || Unqualified Name Runtime
Classses have no fallback to global scope Functions when not found in namespace fall back on global scope Constants when not found in namespace fall back on  global scope
 
Magic constants beware <?php namespace Nbe; echo __LINE__; echo __FILE__; echo __DIR__; echo __FUNCTION__; echo __CLASS__; echo __METHOD__; echo __NAMESPACE__; Magic constants cannot be overwritten so no global namespace prefix is allowed
Namespaces are per file // utils.php <?php function sayHello() { echo 'hello'; } <?php namespace Nbe; require '/utils.php'; ayHello();
Mixing Namespaces Fully Qualified namespace calling is still tedious.  So how do we solve this?
Importing to the rescue! Keyword is  use
Importing to the rescue! <?php namespace  DancingQueenntity ; use  NbeZfntitybstractEntity ; use ZendalidatortaticValidator ; class  User  extends  AbstractEntity { public function setId($id) { If (! StaticValidator ::execute($id, 'digits')) { throw new  InvalidArgumentException ('User id needs to be numeric'); } ... } }
Importing to the rescue! <?php namespace  DancingQueenntity ; use  NbeZfntitybstractEntity , ZendalidatortaticValidator ; class  User  extends  AbstractEntity { public function setId($id) { If (! StaticValidator ::execute($id, 'digits')) { throw new  InvalidArgumentException ('User id needs to be numeric'); } ... } }
OOOH Noes a naming collision :((( <?php namespace NbeZfalidator; use ZendalidatorStaticValidator ; class  StaticValidator  extends StaticValidator  { public static function getBroker() { if (null === self::$broker) { static::setBroker(new ValidatorBroker()); } return self::$broker; } } Fatal error: Cannot declare class  NbeZfalidatortaticValidator  because the name is already in use
Aliasing to the rescue! <?php namespace NbeZfalidator; use ZendalidatortaticValidator as ZfStaticValidator; class StaticValidator extends  ZfStaticValidator   { public static function getBroker() { if (null === self::$broker) { static::setBroker(new ValidatorBroker()); } return self::$broker; } } Aliasing only supported for classes
Aliasing is in-explicitly used <?php namespace DancingQueenntity; use NbeZfntityAbstractEntity  as  AbstractEntity , ZendalidatorStaticValidator  as  StaticValidator ; class User extends  AbstractEntity { public function setId($id) { If (! StaticValidator ::execute($id, 'digits')) { throw new InvalidArgumentException('User id needs to be numeric'); } ... } } Aliasing is done at compile time
Aliasing for semantics <?php namespace Nbe; use Nbeserollection as  Users ; class Group { public function setUsers( Users  $users) { $this->users = $users; } } Great for typehinting Focusing on the WHAT IS – instead on language type
Aliasing for semantics <?php namespace Nbe; use Nbeserollection as  Users ; class Group { public function setUsers($users) { if ($users instanceof  Users ) { $this->users = $users; } } } Great for typehinting Focusing on the WHAT IS – instead on language type
Dynamic Loading
Always at runtime … <?php namespace Nbe; $class = 'ArrayObject'; $object = new $class(); echo get_class($object); Output: ArrayObject … Implies absolute path or Fully Qualified Names
Always use fully qualified names for dynamic class names if they are used! <?php namespace Nbe; class Group { public function setUsers($users) { $class = 'Nbeserollection'; if ($users instanceof  $class ) { $this->users = $users; } } } Even if you are in the current namespace
From other namespace <?php namespace Nbe; $class = 'endiewhpRenderer'; $object = new $class(); echo get_class($object); Ouput: ZendiewhpRenderer
Dynamic Loading from current <?php namespace Nbe; $class = __NAMESPACE__ . '' .  'ArrayObject' ; $object = new $class(); echo get_class($object); Output: NberrayObject User Magic Constant  __NAMESPACE__
Resolution Rules  <?php namespace Nbe; use Tatabe; $object = new ArrayObject(); <?php namespace Nbe; use Tatabe; $object = new NberrayObject(); Resolves to NberrayObject Resolves to TataberrayObject
Resolution Rules  <?php namespace Nbe; use Tatabe; $object = new ArrayObject(); <?php namespace Nbe; use Tatabe; $object = new NberrayObject(); Resolves to NberrayObject Resolves to TataberrayObject
Resolution Rules for Dummies When an alias is available – and there is always an alias available when importing - all unqualified and qualified names are translated using the current import rules. When no alias is available all unqualified and qualified names have the current namespace prepended. Constants and functions have fallbacks to global namespace for unqualified names.
Importing and Aliasing Impacts They don't cost you anything, they are a kind of memory mapping for the PHP interpreter The classes imported aren't effectively loaded into memory unless the class itself is used Added bonus when importing all the classes used at the top of the file is you get A quick dependency overview. There are static tools being developed which will read those dependencies
Explicitly Loading from current <?php namespace  Nbe ; use  Exception ; const ERROR_INFO = 10; try { try { if (1===1) { throw new  Exception ('instantiates xception'); } } catch (xception $e) { throw new  namespacexception ('instantiates bexception', ERROR_INFO, $e); } } catch ( namespacexception  $e) { echo 'error: '.$e->getMessage(); echo PHP_EOL; echo 'nested exception error: '.$e-> getPrevious() ->getMessage(); } with  namespace  keyword <?php namespace  Nbe ; class  Exception  extends  xception {} ?>
Coming to an end, but first some Timeline changes PHP4 class constructor has the same name as the class > PHP5 class constructor is  __construct but accepts PHP4 convention >5.3 namespaces are introduced, nothing changes >= 5.3.3 Backward compatibility change. Only __construct is now regarded as the constructor for namespaced code.
And a quick recap on WHY Readability Dependencies can be indicated easily System functions and constants can be overwritten It is the future, evolve with the language or loose it The market will soon require the namespace skill
And some cool resources The PHP manual  http://www.php.net/namespaces Ralph Schindlers namespace convert tool https://github.com/ralphschindler/PHPTools Plus comments on it by Cal Evans http://blog.calevans.com/2010/03/27/zends-new-namespace-converter/ Google: php namespaces http://www.google.be/search?q=php+namespaces Zend Framework 2.0 Cookbook http://blog.nickbelhomme.com/php/zend-framework-2-0-cookbook_324
And we reached the end, Any questions?
The End! THANK YOU [email_address] Slideshare, Twitter, IRC: NickBelhomme http://blog.nickbelhomme.com

  • 18. 100% PURE NAMESPACES No supplements – Pure Power
  • 19. The container space is created per file at the absolute top <?php namespace Nbeollection; <?php declare(encoding='UTF-8'); namespace Nbeollection; <?php /** * @namespace */ namespace Nbeollection;

  • 24. Common Mistakes <?php namespace be ; // rest of code Fatal error: Undefined constant 'Nbe' <?php namespace Nbe; class Interface {} <?php namespace Nbe; class Abstract {} Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_INTERFACE Parse error: syntax error, unexpected T_ABSTRACT
  • 25. Different name types Fully Qualified Name NbeodelbstractModel Qualified Name ModelbstractModel Unqualified Name AbstractModel
  • 26. Autoloading namespaces function __autoload($class) { require_once str_replace( '', DIRECTORY_SEPARATOR, $class ) . '.php'; } new beZfodelser() maps to NbeZfodelser require_once NbeZf/Model/User.php
  • 27. Autoloading namespaces <?php namespace Nbeoader; function autoLoader($className) { require_once str_replace('', IRECTORY_SEPARATOR, $className) . '.php'; } <?php require 'Nbe/Loader/autoloader.php'; spl_autoload_register('NbeLoaderautoloader'); $user = new Nbentityser();
  • 28. Resolving namespace calls <?php namespace Nbe; class Model {} $model = new Model(); echo get_class($model); Output: NbeModel <?php namespace Nbe; function model() { return __FUNCTION__; } echo model(); Output: Nbeodel
  • 29. Resolving namespace calls <?php namespace Nbe; class Model {} $model = new Model(); echo get_class($model); Output: Nbeodel <?php namespace Nbe; function model() { return __FUNCTION__; } echo model(); Output: Nbeodel
  • 30. Consequences <?php namespace Nbe; $collection = new ArrayObject(); Fatal error: Class 'NberrayObject' not found <?php namespace Nbe; $collection = new ArrayObject(); Indicate global namespace with a single backslash <----
  • 31. Function fallbacks happen at Runtime <?php namespace Nbe; var_dump(explode(';', ' some;cool;words '));
  • 32. Warning system functions within namespaces – Procedural Code <?php namespace WackyCode; ar_dump( explode(';', 'some;cool;words')); Don't override system functions Or explicitly call global space FULLY QUALIFIED NAMES Compile time <---- <?php namespace WackyCode; function explode($separator, $string) { // do some freaky stuff }
  • 33. (Procedural) Constants fallbacks <?php namespace Nbe { echo E_ERROR; }
  • 34. (Procedural) Constants fallbacks <?php namespace Nbe { E_ERROR = 10; } <?php namespace Nbe { echo E_ERROR; } <?php namespace Nbe { echo _ERROR; } Do not override system constants or Explicitly call global space Fully quaylified names, compile time
  • 35.  
  • 36. Fully Qualified Name Compile Time Qualified || Unqualified Name Runtime
  • 37. Classses have no fallback to global scope Functions when not found in namespace fall back on global scope Constants when not found in namespace fall back on global scope
  • 38.  
  • 39. Magic constants beware <?php namespace Nbe; echo __LINE__; echo __FILE__; echo __DIR__; echo __FUNCTION__; echo __CLASS__; echo __METHOD__; echo __NAMESPACE__; Magic constants cannot be overwritten so no global namespace prefix is allowed
  • 40. Namespaces are per file // utils.php <?php function sayHello() { echo 'hello'; } <?php namespace Nbe; require '/utils.php'; ayHello();
  • 41. Mixing Namespaces Fully Qualified namespace calling is still tedious. So how do we solve this?
  • 42. Importing to the rescue! Keyword is use
  • 43. Importing to the rescue! <?php namespace DancingQueenntity ; use NbeZfntitybstractEntity ; use ZendalidatortaticValidator ; class User extends AbstractEntity { public function setId($id) { If (! StaticValidator ::execute($id, 'digits')) { throw new InvalidArgumentException ('User id needs to be numeric'); } ... } }
  • 44. Importing to the rescue! <?php namespace DancingQueenntity ; use NbeZfntitybstractEntity , ZendalidatortaticValidator ; class User extends AbstractEntity { public function setId($id) { If (! StaticValidator ::execute($id, 'digits')) { throw new InvalidArgumentException ('User id needs to be numeric'); } ... } }
  • 45. OOOH Noes a naming collision :((( <?php namespace NbeZfalidator; use ZendalidatorStaticValidator ; class StaticValidator extends StaticValidator { public static function getBroker() { if (null === self::$broker) { static::setBroker(new ValidatorBroker()); } return self::$broker; } } Fatal error: Cannot declare class NbeZfalidatortaticValidator because the name is already in use
  • 46. Aliasing to the rescue! <?php namespace NbeZfalidator; use ZendalidatortaticValidator as ZfStaticValidator; class StaticValidator extends ZfStaticValidator { public static function getBroker() { if (null === self::$broker) { static::setBroker(new ValidatorBroker()); } return self::$broker; } } Aliasing only supported for classes
  • 47. Aliasing is in-explicitly used <?php namespace DancingQueenntity; use NbeZfntityAbstractEntity as AbstractEntity , ZendalidatorStaticValidator as StaticValidator ; class User extends AbstractEntity { public function setId($id) { If (! StaticValidator ::execute($id, 'digits')) { throw new InvalidArgumentException('User id needs to be numeric'); } ... } } Aliasing is done at compile time
  • 48. Aliasing for semantics <?php namespace Nbe; use Nbeserollection as Users ; class Group { public function setUsers( Users $users) { $this->users = $users; } } Great for typehinting Focusing on the WHAT IS – instead on language type
  • 49. Aliasing for semantics <?php namespace Nbe; use Nbeserollection as Users ; class Group { public function setUsers($users) { if ($users instanceof Users ) { $this->users = $users; } } } Great for typehinting Focusing on the WHAT IS – instead on language type
  • 51. Always at runtime … <?php namespace Nbe; $class = 'ArrayObject'; $object = new $class(); echo get_class($object); Output: ArrayObject … Implies absolute path or Fully Qualified Names
  • 52. Always use fully qualified names for dynamic class names if they are used! <?php namespace Nbe; class Group { public function setUsers($users) { $class = 'Nbeserollection'; if ($users instanceof $class ) { $this->users = $users; } } } Even if you are in the current namespace
  • 53. From other namespace <?php namespace Nbe; $class = 'endiewhpRenderer'; $object = new $class(); echo get_class($object); Ouput: ZendiewhpRenderer
  • 54. Dynamic Loading from current <?php namespace Nbe; $class = __NAMESPACE__ . '' . 'ArrayObject' ; $object = new $class(); echo get_class($object); Output: NberrayObject User Magic Constant __NAMESPACE__
  • 55. Resolution Rules <?php namespace Nbe; use Tatabe; $object = new ArrayObject(); <?php namespace Nbe; use Tatabe; $object = new NberrayObject(); Resolves to NberrayObject Resolves to TataberrayObject
  • 56. Resolution Rules <?php namespace Nbe; use Tatabe; $object = new ArrayObject(); <?php namespace Nbe; use Tatabe; $object = new NberrayObject(); Resolves to NberrayObject Resolves to TataberrayObject
  • 57. Resolution Rules for Dummies When an alias is available – and there is always an alias available when importing - all unqualified and qualified names are translated using the current import rules. When no alias is available all unqualified and qualified names have the current namespace prepended. Constants and functions have fallbacks to global namespace for unqualified names.
  • 58. Importing and Aliasing Impacts They don't cost you anything, they are a kind of memory mapping for the PHP interpreter The classes imported aren't effectively loaded into memory unless the class itself is used Added bonus when importing all the classes used at the top of the file is you get A quick dependency overview. There are static tools being developed which will read those dependencies
  • 59. Explicitly Loading from current <?php namespace Nbe ; use Exception ; const ERROR_INFO = 10; try { try { if (1===1) { throw new Exception ('instantiates xception'); } } catch (xception $e) { throw new namespacexception ('instantiates bexception', ERROR_INFO, $e); } } catch ( namespacexception $e) { echo 'error: '.$e->getMessage(); echo PHP_EOL; echo 'nested exception error: '.$e-> getPrevious() ->getMessage(); } with namespace keyword <?php namespace Nbe ; class Exception extends xception {} ?>
  • 60. Coming to an end, but first some Timeline changes PHP4 class constructor has the same name as the class > PHP5 class constructor is __construct but accepts PHP4 convention >5.3 namespaces are introduced, nothing changes >= 5.3.3 Backward compatibility change. Only __construct is now regarded as the constructor for namespaced code.
  • 61. And a quick recap on WHY Readability Dependencies can be indicated easily System functions and constants can be overwritten It is the future, evolve with the language or loose it The market will soon require the namespace skill
  • 62.
