README for ISBNDBService v1.0 07-06-2009 (7 june 2009) ISBNDBService is a PHP wrapper for's webservice API. It will represent the returned data as PHP objects that can be manipulated and read. Features: * Implements paging mechanism used by the webservice * Can represent all data currently returned by the webservice * Can handle all request types currently used by the webservice * Makes pages and resultset function as iterators Warnings: This library relies on an implementation of an autoload mechanism. No files are automatically included or required to allow for a flexible implementation of this library in your project Tips: If you want to display data from a result or a collection in a generic way, say XML or JSON use the decorator pattern. For example if you want to display a collection as an xml string to use in an AJAX request: <code> class ISBNDBServiceCollectionDecoratorXML { protected $collection = null; public function __construct(ISBNDBServiceCollection $collection) { $this->collection = $collection; } public function __toString() { /** * This is the place where you loop over your collection and * create the xml string that you need to display. */ } } </code>
