Observer pattern

Defines a one-to-many dependency between objects so that when one objects changes state, all its dependents get notified and updated automatically.

Design Principle

  • Identify the aspects of your application that vary and separate them from what stay the same
  • Program to an interface, not an implementation
  • Favor composition over inheritance
  • Strive for loosely coupled designs between objets that interacts

Usage:

The example code is for Weather monitoring station

    use App\Observer\Weather\CurrentConditionDisplay;
    use App\Observer\Weather\ForcastDisplay;
    use App\Observer\Weather\WeatherData;

    $weatherData = new WeatherData();
    
    $currentConditionDisplay = new CurrentConditionDisplay($weatherData);
    $forcastDisplay          = new ForcastDisplay($weatherData);
    
    // both $currentConditionDisplay and $forcastDisplay get updated automatically
    $weatherData->changeMeasurements(35.9, 10.4, 20.2);
   
    // both $currentConditionDisplay and $forcastDisplay get updated automatically
    $weatherData->changeMeasurements(85.5, 19.4, 70.2);
