OOP Design Pattern

Adapter Pattern OO Design PHP Example

Quoting from Url
“The adapter pattern is adapting between classes and objects.
Like any adapter in the real world it is used to be an interface, a bridge between two objects.
In real world we have adapters for power supplies, adapters for camera memory cards, and so on. Probably everyone have seen some adapters for memory cards. If you can not plug in the camera memory in your laptop you can use and adapter.
You plug the camera memory in the adapter and the adapter in to laptop slot. That’s it, it’s really simple.”

It is more clear to understand with example.
PHP Examples

  1. Example 1
    class clsSong {
    	private $title;
    	private $genre
    	function __construct($title, $genre) {
    		$this->title = $title;
    		$this->genre = $genre;		
    	function getTitle() {
    		return $this->title;
    	function getGenre() {
    		return $this->genre;
    class clsSong_Adapter {
    	private $objSong;
    	function __construct(clsSong $objSong) {
    		$this->objSong = $objSong;			
    	function getTitleGenre() {
    		return $this->objSong->getTitle()."/".$this->objSong->getGenre();
    $objSong = new clsSong("Nothing Else Matter", "Heavy Metal");
    echo $objSong->getTitle()."/".$objSong->getGenre();
    echo "<br>";
    $objSngAdapt = new clsSong_Adapter($objSong);
    echo $objSngAdapt->getTitleGenre();

PHP Adapter Design Pattern Example

This post contains two examples of Adapter Design Pattern using PHP. I am giving these examples in order to understand more comprehend about Adapter Pattern.

First, implementation of Adapter Design Pattern statement
Convert the interface of a class into another interface clients expect.
Adapter lets classes work together that couldn’t otherwise because of incompatible interfaces.
Adapters are helpful if you want to use a class that doesn’t have quite the exact methods you need.

Second, implementation of using legacy class and you can’t change that legacy class but you want to port its method to another needful method.

First Example

An example class ‘clsProducts’ methods can be used inside many Adapter class to returns another result.
clsProducts object instance is passed as Adapter classes constructor argument and clsProducts methods are being used inside those Adapter classes.

Abstract Factory Pattern Example With C#

Abstract factory pattern is to “provide an interface for creating families of related or dependent objects without specifying their concrete classes.”

For example a drawing & printing machine can process Low and High Resolution. Both have its own resolution drivers. Those drivers referred to concrete class with draw / print function. However the client implementation code asks the factory object class (not the concrete class) for a driver instance with provides information about resolution required. So this factory object return instance of concrete class.
The factory object implements an abstract class. It can instantiates a concrete class and return to client with casted to factory’s parent which is abstract Resolution driver.
The client uses the resolution driver as abstract without being aware about their concrete implementation.

Benefit of using factory pattern is in client code implementation, new resolution can be added with just providing that new resolution info as argument. So no change in client code.
