||Service Data Objects (SDOs) enable PHP applications to work with data from different sources (typically a database query or an XML file) using a single interface. SCA for PHP allows a PHP programmer to write reusable components (classes) in PHP, which can be called either locally, or in a a variety of ways remotely (soap web services, xml-rpc, json-rpc, REST, etc), but always with the same interface.
|This release adds support for reflection on a data object. The SDO_Model_ReflectionDataObject gives the programmer access to the type and structure information in a data object's model. This can help with debugging, or be used in dynamic user interface generation.
