Zend Framework: Zend_Service_SecondLife Component Proposal

Proposed Component Name Zend_Service_SecondLife
Developer Notes
Proposers Lars Strojny
Darby Felton, Zend liaison
Revision 0.1 - 10 March 2007: Initial submission
0.2 - 26 December: Added details (wiki revision: 11)

Table of Contents

1. Overview

Zend_Service_SecondLife provides a convenient way to access the Second Life API provided by Linden Labs. Second Life is a virtual reality game.
Currently the API just offers methods to create new accounts.

2. References

*Linden Labs PHP-lib (PHP4 only)
*Second Life API documentation

3. Component Requirements, Constraints, and Acceptance Criteria

  • Zend_Service_SecondLife will abstract the access to the SecondLife API
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife will use Zend_Http_Client for HTTP communication
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife will wrap all existant SecondLife API calls
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife will not strictly expose the API calls in Zend_Service_SecondLife 1:1
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife will normalize API calls and paramater names

4. Dependencies on Other Framework Components

  • Zend_Exception

5. Theory of Operation

This component is used to call the Secondlife API. Until now only user registrations are possible. The proprietary SecondLife API protocol is similiar to XML/RPC and therefore a similiar design pattern is used (every value represented by an object).

6. Milestones / Tasks

  • Milestone 1: Get feedback
  • Milestone 2: Work on prototype in the laboratory
  • Milestone 3: [DONE] Working prototype supporting retrieval of valid SL last names, getting error codes, verifying names and creating users.
  • Milestone 4: Checkin to the incubator.
  • Milestone 5: Unit tests exist, work, and are checked into SVN.
  • Milestone 6: Initial documentation exists.

7. Class Index

  • Zend_Service_SecondLife
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Array
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Boolean
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Collection
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Integer
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Key
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Llsd
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Map
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Abstract
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_Scalar
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Value_String
  • Zend_Service_SecondLife_Exception

8. Use Cases
