Zend Framework: Zend_Service_OrangeApi Component Proposal

Proposed Component Name Zend_Service_OrangeApi
Developer Notes
Proposers Laurent ARTUSIO
Zend Liaison TBD
Revision 0.1 - 23 June 2010 : Draft. (wiki revision: 17)

Table of Contents

1. Overview

Orange API provide to web developers and integrators, a set of web services allowing to easily integrate telecom services into web sites and applications. The Orange APIs, available on » Orange APIs, are currently the following :

  • sending and receiving text messages services (Send SMS) to any operator worldwide and multimedia messages (send MMS) to Orange mobile phones.
  • get the location of Orange mobile phones, for any device
  • call-control service
  • conference management
  • interactive vocal services

The Zend_Service_OrangeApi components provides a clean and simple interface to the » Orange APIs and additionally offers functionality to improve handling and performance.

  • orange.ini: File to set Orange API connections details and user account details.
  • Send SMS: The SMS API from Orange allows you to send and receive text messages within your web application.
  • Location: The Location API is a web service which allows mobile devices to be geolocated.

In order to make such APIs easy to use for Zend developers, Orange supplies a core Zend component.

3. Component Requirements, Constraints, and Acceptance Criteria

  • This component wraps Orange APis in a raw manner (i.e parameters names, methods names, returned values)
  • This component is as exhaustive as possible, regarding APIs functionalities.
  • This component does not include parameters validity control, it will be done on the server side.
  • This component relay server-side returned errors by throwing exceptions, containing errors codes and errors messages.
  • This component allow subclassing, for any useful purpose.

4. Dependencies on Other Framework Components

  • Zend_Http_Client_Adapter_Proxy
  • Zend_Rest_Client

5. Theory of Operation

Every Orange API is accessed through a single class which inherits the common Zend_Service_OrangeApi_Client class. Each API class is named after the official Orange API denomination. Each API class instanciation is done by passing the mandatory Orange access key ("id" parameter) to the constructor.

6. Milestones / Tasks

Describe some intermediate state of this component in terms of design notes, additional material added to this page, and / code. Note any significant dependencies here, such as, "Milestone #3 can not be completed until feature Foo has been added to ZF component XYZ." Milestones will be required for acceptance of future proposals. They are not hard, and many times you will only need to think of the first three below.

  • Milestone 1: [DONE] Set a common architecture for all APIs
  • Milestone 2: Working prototype checked into the incubator supporting use cases #1, #2, ...
  • Milestone 3: Working prototype checked into the incubator supporting use cases #3 and #4.
  • Milestone 4: Unit tests exist, work, and are checked into SVN.
  • Milestone 5: Initial documentation exists.

If a milestone is already done, begin the description with "[DONE]", like this:

  • Milestone #: [DONE] Unit tests ...

7. Class Index

  • Zend_Service_OrangeApi_ClientAbstract
  • Zend_Service_OrangeApi_Exception
