Upgrading from Zend Framework 1.7 to 1.9 – The autoloader
Today I upgraded a project we started working on last year from Zend Framework 1.7 to Zend Framework 1.9. I excepted to run into several API incompatibilities, but the only problem I got was the autoloader.
In Zend 1.7, and earlier versions, the autoloader was registered like this:
In Zend Framwork 1.9 this has changed slightly, you now have to register the namespaces you want to autoload:
$loader = Zend_Loader_Autoloader::getInstance();
This was the only change we needed to do to upgrade from 1.7 to 1.9, quite impressive!
