Vidyut Luther's Blog:
PHP Namespaces - Working with external teams and possibly frameworks
March 01, 2006 @ 07:04:27

Vidyut Luther has posted a new item on his blog today that presents a situation he's been given concerning namespaces.

I've run into an issue, or rather a friend of mine has. He asked me for advice, I gave it to him, but I'm curious how others would do this. The problem is this:

Team A, has been working on some code for a few months, Team A has a class called "SomeClass". Team B, is an "outsourced" team, who is writing a SOAP interface to Team A's code. Somehow, due to whatever reasons, Team A and Team B developers didn't talk.

Team B also created a class and called it "SomeClass". These classes are in files called "Aclass.class.php" and "Bclass.class.php" . There are some files, that include both files.. obviously, you end up with a "cannot redeclare class" fatal error.

Vidyut's suggestion was to just to change the class names. Unfortunately, this might not work if there is no communication between the two parties - they cannot come to a compromise on the naming.

He question to the community is "How do you handle an issue of single namespace, or rather no namespace ?"
