DevShed:
Enhancing a URL Handling Helper Class in PHP 5
August 11, 2009 @ 08:37:47

DevShed continues their look at making helpers in PHP5 classes with this new part of the series - updating their previous URL helper to change it over to a static class.

As you'll possibly recall, all of the methods of the class were called initially inside the object context, that is dynamically, which may lead to the creation of an unnecessary instance of the helper class. So, to solve this issue quickly, in this chapter of the series I'm going to redefine the signature of the previous URL helper class by declaring all of its methods static.

Their updates involve adding the "static" keyword to each of the function definitions so they can be called like: "URLHelper::get_request_method()".
