Class Gectrl

Gectrl is a PHP generic controller class

  • Supports the MVC software design pattern
  • Distinguish controller and application logic using a strategy pattern

The controller provides coordination logic

The controller delegates application logic to actionClasses

  • using implementations of the (strategy) [ActionClassInterface],
  • invoking of actionClass condition evaluate (in order) and opt, logicdoAction* methods,
  • passing all data information in an encapsulated [Package] class instance * input, output, config, logger etc

For [ActionClassInterface] example, please review test/AcSrc/ActionExampleTest.php.<br> To obtain actionsClasses (FQCNs) from namespace(s), you may use [hpierce1102/ClassFinder].<br> Any trait / interface / abstract class in FQCNs array are ignored.
