Symfony CMF sandbox now running with multiple different PHPCR implementations

Date: 2012-06-12

One of the fundamental ideas of PHPCR is that there can be multiple implementations that from an API act and behave exactly the same, but can be optimized for every different scalability and server requirements. We have been adding functional tests for the sandbox, but initially only tested using the Jackrabbit based PHPCR implementation. In the past weeks we have now also enabled running the same tests against the Doctrine DBAL and Midgard implementations. The key thing is that all we had to do was adjust the configuration, no code changes were necessary. This is the best validation of the concept of PHPCR possible! It proofs that the same code can run against now 3 different implementations of PHPCR!
