Upgrading from Zend Framework 1.7 to 1.9 – The autoloader

Posted by: Peter In: Uncategorized

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:

  2. require_once "Zend/Loader.php";
  3. Zend_Loader::registerAutoload();

In Zend Framwork 1.9 this has changed slightly, you now have to register the namespaces you want to autoload:

  2. require_once ‘Zend/Loader/Autoloader.php’;
  3. $loader = Zend_Loader_Autoloader::getInstance();
  4. $loader->registerNamespace(‘Dqc_’);

This was the only change we needed to do to upgrade from 1.7 to 1.9, quite impressive!

Welcome to source code bean! On this site I post stuff that I encounter in my job and spare time. The content is mostly related to .NET development, but my interest in techonology is very broad, so often you will find posts on totally different subjects!
