PHP|Architect's Guide to PHP Design Patterns is an introductory book about software design patterns and test driven development using PHP.

It covers several well known patterns with examples. Although there were several improvements between PHP 4 and PHP 5, the author used PHP 4 object model to present the book examples.

As we know, PHP 4 has a different Object Oriented Programming model, which in my opinion is quite limited. Despite this fact, the examples can be easily converted to take advantage of PHP 5 and the new OOP model.

There is also an introduction to test driven software development. A tool named SimpleTest, that was created by Marcus Baker, is also introduced in this book. It allows PHP users to create unit tests.

Every chapter contains a design pattern explanation, a description of how it can be implemented in PHP, and unit test code using SimpleTest to demonstrate test driven software development techniques.

Overall, this is a good book for PHP developers who want to start learning about the basics of software design patterns and test driven development techniques applied to PHP.

A useful book, but as much about Simpletest as about patterns... - 0 replies
