Zend Framework: Zend_Log_Writer_Mail Component Proposal

Proposed Component Name Zend_Log_Writer_Mail
Developer Notes
Proposers Brian DeShong
Revision 1.0 - 26 January 2008 - Initial creation (wiki revision: 15)

Table of Contents

1. Overview

Zend_Log_Writer_Mail is a Zend_Log writer for sending log entries to recipient(s) via email.

Proposal of this class is motivated by use in a batch script environment, where logs need to be kept, but developers also need to be notified via email of any notices, warnings, errors, etc.; will be illustrated below in "Use Cases."

3. Component Requirements, Constraints, and Acceptance Criteria

  • This component will attempt to deliver appropriate log entries to given recipient(s)
  • This component will adhere to standard Zend_Log_Writer formatting and filtering conventions
  • This component will not open connections to the Zend_Mail transport until a message is ready to be sent

4. Dependencies on Other Framework Components

  • Zend_Mail
  • Zend_Log_Writer_Abstract

5. Theory of Operation

User instantiates a Zend_Mail object and populates it with data for recipients that should be notified of any log entries. Zend_Mail object is then passed to constructor for Zend_Log_Writer_Mail object.

Zend_Log_Writer_Mail::_write() builds up an array of log entry lines to use as the body of the email message to the recipients.

Email should not be sent upon the call of Zend_Log_Writer_Mail::_write(); the email should be sent upon the call to shutdown() if there are log entry lines to use in the body.

Once email has been sent to recipients, reference to Zend_Mail object is NOT removed as the user may want to continue using it.
