ZF-8812: Zend_Controller_Router_Route_Chain fails with some combinations of routes in the chain

Issue Type: Bug Created: 2010-01-13T19:54:51.000+0000 Last Updated: 2010-10-20T11:46:52.000+0000 Status: Resolved Fix version(s): - 1.11.0 (02/Nov/10)

Reporter: Ziad (ziadx) Assignee: Matthew Weier O'Phinney (matthew) Tags: - Zend_Controller

Related issues: - ZF-10536

Attachments: - Chain.php.diff


Here are the pieces of relevant code and test cases:

<pre class="highlight">
$front = Zend_Controller_Front::getInstance();
$router = $front->getRouter();
$request = new Zend_Controller_Request_Http();

$languageRoute = new Zend_Controller_Router_Route_Regex('([a-z]{2})?', array('language' => 'xx'), array(1 => 'language'), '%s');
$moduleRoute = new Zend_Controller_Router_Route_Module(array(), Zend_Controller_Front::getInstance()->getDispatcher(), $request);
$defaultRoute = $languageRoute->chain($moduleRoute);
$router->addRoute('default', $defaultRoute);

Inside the match() method of Zend_Controller_Router_Route_Chain, if the request URI is '/en/' or '/en', then $subPath will become bool(false) after the match() call to the regex route. Therefore, not only will the module route never get picked up, but the match() method of the chain route will return bool(false).

I was able to patch this by changing:

<pre class="highlight">
if ($key > 0 && $matchedPath !== null) {


<pre class="highlight">
if ($key > 0 && $matchedPath !== null && $subPath !== '' && $subPath !== false) {

I'm using Ziad's patch that solve similar case.

resources.router.routes.defaultmodule.type = Zend_Controller_Router_Route_Module resources.router.routes.defaultmodule.defaults.module = "default" resources.router.routes.defaultmodule.defaults.controller = "index" resources.router.routes.defaultmodule.defaults.action = "index"

resources.router.routes.language.type = Zend_Controller_Router_Route resources.router.routes.language.route = ":language" resources.router.routes.language.reqs.language = "^(it|fr|en|de)$" resources.router.routes.language.defaults.language = "en"

resources.router.routes.default.type = Zend_Controller_Router_Route_Chain resources.router.routes.default.chain = "language, defaultmodule"

Hello, could you change the priority of this task? I have to patch every new release to do work route chain defaults value. Thanks, great work.

also tested with 1.10.1

resources.frontcontroller.defaultModule = "default" resources.frontcontroller.controllerDirectory = APPLICATION_PATH "/controllers" resources.frontcontroller.moduleDirectory = APPLICATION_PATH "/modules"

resources.router.routes.defaultRoute.type = Zend_Controller_Router_Route_Module" resources.router.routes.defaultRoute.abstract = "On" resources.router.routes.defaultRoute.route = ":module" resources.router.routes.defaultRoute.defaults.module = "default"

resources.router.routes.language.type = "Zend_Controller_Router_Route" resources.router.routes.language.route = ":lang" resources.router.routes.language.reqs.lang = "^(en|de)$" resources.router.routes.language.defaults.lang = "en"

resources.router.routes.default.type = "Zend_Controller_Router_Route_Chain" resources.router.routes.default.chain = "language, defaultRoute"

test url -> request-object

/ -> /en/default/index/index /en -> /en/default/index/index /de -> /de/default/index/index /en/admin/index/index -> /en/admin/index/index /en/index -> /en/default/index/index

works all great. i think, this is a blocker.

Patch and unit test added.

To get unit test work, patch from ZF-10536 should be added first.

Applied to both trunk and 1.11 release branch -- thanks!
