PHP5 Tutorials – Introduction

September 27th, 2007

Being a veteran Java programmer and a big believer of OOAD concepts I have started toying with PHP5 – which the world says to be the next level of PHP.

Guys behind PHP5 have no doubt done a remarkable job by releasing this version at a much needed time when the entire PHP community were wanting their favorite PHP language with OOPS features.

PHP5 has a couple of good OOPS features like:

  • You can now write Destructor methods
  • You can now define access specifiers (public, private & protected)
  • You can now inherit from a base class, therefore function overriding is now possible
  • You can now define Abstract Classes
  • You can now create Interfaces
  • PHP has now introduced Method Type Hinting

Compared to Java PHP5 does not have much to offer, but I sincerely believe that its a positive start towards making PHP5 a language as well defined by Java.

PHP6 is now under active development where a lot of new features are being thought of and support for certain global variables are removed.
