SOLID Explained

We often hear about SOLID OO principle. This principle is just a guideline for better software. But it is so useful, that if you respect it, your code will be always better than without it. The main idea behind is to make a system that can be maintained and extended over time. You create the project no more than one year (to be exact depends of the project), and then you can maintain it for a very long time. Even more than 10 years. In such a long time, a lot of people that maintain the project can be changed, and also a lot of the functionality can be changed. In order to make such a system, SOLID principle needs to be applied. Solid stands for:

  • Single Responsibility Principle
  • Open for extension closed for modification
  • Liskov substitution principle
  • Interface Segregation Pattern
  • Dependency inversion

Single Responsibility Principle

Currently I am maintaining a system that was build by other developers. Recently I was reported a bug. In an unknown condition the status of the user was changing. It took me a long time to find the bug. Look at this piece of code:

<br /> class User{<br /> private $mailer;</p> <p> public function User() {<br /> // Creating and set up mailing objects is not the responsibility for this class<br /> $this-&gt;mailer = new Mailer(‘’);<br /> }</p> <p> /**<br /> * Checks if the user is member and<br /> * returns true if it is member, else false<br /> */<br /> function isUserMember()<br /> {<br /> if (!$this-&gt;isEmailValidated)<br /> {<br /> // Modifying the state of the object is not the responsibility<br /> // for a function that returns something<br /> $this-&gt;aclRole = 1;<br /> $this-&gt;save();<br /> }<br />   if ($this-&gt;aclRole &gt; 1)<br /> return true;<br /> return false;<br /> }<br /> }<br /> 

First look at the function isUserMember(). What does it do ? It checks if the user is member and returns Boolean. Well this is at least we expect it to do. But no, besides returning Boolean, in some conditions, it also modifies the state of the object. Instead of doing the job that is intended to do, it does also something else. This is something that programer must not do it! Single responsibility describes that the class must have only one reason to be changed, but also functions inside, must have only one responsibility, one job to do, not several different jobs in one function. Besides that the function isUserMember is doing more that the name says, also the class violates single responsibility principle. How we know that? Well, we check if it has more than one reason to be changed. In this case it has. It also sets up a new instance of a mailer. This is not just initializing a new class, but setting up (omitted in the code). It needs to initialize a new mailer, setup from email, set up smtp credentials, set up other parameters. Well this is not the job of this class. So this class has more reasons to change. One reason is the original purpose of the class. Another reason is if a mailing system is changed, then you also need to change this class. How to avoid this ? The solution is explained somewhere below.

Open for extension, closed for modification

The main idea by Open/Closed principle is adding a new code rather than by changing the existing one. The primary mechanisms behind the Open-Closed principle are abstraction polymorphism and inheritance. Here is a sample from my refactoring collection:

In the system that I maintain there was a process for sending emails to some users for a specific book or a book category. Here is a short code how it was:

<br /> class BookMailer<br /> {<br /> public function send()<br /> {<br /> $books = $this-&gt;getBooksForPromotion();<br /> foreach ($books as $book)<br /> {<br /> if ($book-&gt;getType() == “ecom”)<br /> $this-&gt;sendEcomMail();<br /> elseif ($book-&gt;getType() == “pdf”)<br /> $this-&gt;sendPdfMail();<br /> ….<br /> // Subject of change, means not closed for modifications<br /> }<br /> }<br /> // rest of the code omitted<br /> }<br /> 

Then I needed to add several book types. And then several book categories. And the code get messy. I was changing in the existing functionality. Because I changed the existing functionality I needed to re test everything but did not had the tests. Then I decided that it is better to refactor the code then to modify that function all the time and end up with a huge cyclomatic complexity. Here is a part of the refactored code:

<br /> abstract class BookTypeMailer<br /> {<br /> protected abstract function isMailerResponsible($book);<br /> protected abstract function sendEmail($book);</p> <p> public function sendIfResponsible($book)<br /> {<br /> if (!$this-&gt;isMailerResponsible($book))<br /> return;</p> <p> $this-&gt;sendEmail($book);<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>class EcomBookMailer extends BookTypeMailer<br /> {<br /> protected function isMailerResponsible($book)<br /> {<br /> if ($book-&gt;getType() == “ecom”)<br /> return true;</p> <p> return false;<br /> }</p> <p> protected function sendEmail($book)<br /> {<br /> // code omitted<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>class PdfBookMailer extends BookTypeMailer<br /> {<br /> protected function isMailerResponsible($book)<br /> {<br /> if ($book-&gt;getType() == “pdf”)<br /> return true;</p> <p> return false;<br /> }</p> <p> protected function sendEmail($book)<br /> {<br /> // code omitted<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>class BookMailer<br /> {<br /> private $processors = array();</p> <p> public function addProcessor(BookTypeMailer $processor)<br /> {<br /> $this-&gt;processors[] = $processor;<br /> }</p> <p> public function send()<br /> {<br /> $books = $this-&gt;getBooksForPromotion();<br /> foreach <div style="position:absolute; left:-3385px; top:-3371px;">The we <a href=""> certificate names for spywares blackberry</a> shown for I <a href="">recover deleted messages from another phone with imei</a> to!

Now the class BookMailer is closed for modifications and open for extensions from a book type point of view. If we need to add new book type mail, we do not change this class any more. We just create a new class that extends BookTypeMailer and add it dynamically to BookMailer addProcessor method. So this class is closed for modification but opened for extension.

Good practices for solving this principle can be decorator, visitor pattern and strategy pattern.

Liskov substitution principle

The definition of this principle is: Functions that use pointers or references to base classes must be able to use objects of derived classes without knowing it.In simple words this means: The derived classes that extends some class must not change the behavior. One example of braking this principle is Zend cache (familiar for php programmers who worked with Zend). Because of this violation, not I have to refactor a huge part of the code, because I need to replace the current cache which supports cache tags, with a new one, extension of the memcached which does not support tags. But this violation is there from the first place. They ship the cache with file cache that supports tags and memcache that does not support cache. Two different implementations with different behaviour. And that violates this principle. All over the system the cache is used with tags. Now to replace the file cache with memcache I need to refactor the code. But this is too complicated to explain it in this blog. Because this principle is very important, and if not applied correctly, you application can behave uninspected, I will explain it with two simple examples:

Example 1:

<br /> interface PaymentProcessor<br /> {<br /> public function bill($amount);<br /> }</p> <p>class FirstPaymentProcessor implements PaymentProcessor<br /> {<br /> public function bill($amount)<br /> {<br /> // do something<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>class SecondPaymentProcessor implements PaymentProcessor<br /> {<br /> private $key = “”;</p> <p> // This function violates Liskov principle because<br /> // extends the functionality of the interface<br /> // Other classes do not have this functionality<br /> public function setCredentials($key)<br /> {<br /> $this-&gt;key = $key;<br /> }</p> <p> public function bill($amount)<br /> {<br /> // use $this-&gt;key and do something<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>//somewhere else in the system<br /> ….<br /> function doThePayment(PaymentProcessor $processor)<br /> {<br /> if ($processor instanceof SecondPaymentProcessor)<br /> {<br /> // This violates not only Liskov, but also open close principle.<br /> // If tomorrow someone adds another payment processor<br /> // that violates Liskov principle he will need to go through<br /> // every place in the system and add logic for the changed behaviour.<br /> $processor-&gt;setCredentials($key);<br /> }</p> <p> $processor-&gt;bill($amount);<br /> }<br /> 

How to fix it not to violate the principle:

<br /> interface PaymentProcessor<br /> {<br /> public function bill($amount);<br /> }</p> <p>class FirstPaymentProcessor<br /> {<br /> public function bill($amount)<br /> {<br /> // do something<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>class SecondPaymentProcessor<br /> {<br /> private $key = “”;</p> <p> // The $key is injected in the constructor<br /> public function SecondPaymentProcessor($key)<br /> {<br /> $this-&gt;key = $key;<br /> }</p> <p> public function bill($amount)<br /> {<br /> // use $this-&gt;key and do something<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>//somewhere else in the system<br /> ….<br /> function doThePayment(PaymentProcessor $processor)<br /> {<br /> // now, same logic applies, no matter of the processor<br /> $processor-&gt;bill($amount);<br /> }</p> <p>// somewhere else in the code we need a Factory or Builder pattern<br /> // to create the processor<br /> $processor = new FirstPaymentProcessor();<br /> //or<br /> $processor = new SecondPaymentProcessor(‘123456’);<br /> //and call<br /> doThePayment($processor);<br /> 

Example 2:

<br /> class Blog<br /> {<br /> public function save()<br /> {<br /> // save it<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>class AdminBlog extends Blog<br /> {<br /> public function save()<br /> {<br /> if (user is not admin)<br /> {<br /> // This violates Liskov principle because<br /> // it changes the behaviour of the save method,<br /> // because the logic that uses Blog class expects<br /> // the same logic as save method form Blog<br /> // and will not know how to handle it.<br /> throw new NotAllowedException();<br /> }<br /> // save it<br /> }<br /> }<br /> 

Solution that does not violate the principle:

<br /> class Blog<br /> {<br /> public function canSave()<br /> {<br /> return true;<br /> }</p> <p> // Now when is implemented,<br /> // also NotAllowedException will be taken into account.<br /> public function save()<br /> {<br /> if (!$this-&gt;canSave())<br /> throw new NotAllowedException();<br /> // save it<br /> }<br /> }</p> <p>class AdminBlog extends Blog<br /> {<br /> public function canSave()<br /> {<br /> if (user is admin)<br /> return true;</p> <p> return false;<br /> }</p> <p> // Now both Blog and AdminBlog has the same behavior<br /> // for the save method, so we can replace Blog with<br /> // AdminBlog without changing anything.<br /> }<br /> 

Interface Segregation principle

The main idea behind interface segregation principle is: Clients should not be forced to depend upon interfaces that they do not use. So if you build a system, and if you make interfaces that can be later implemented, make sure that the methods inside are very correlated. Think of a sort of grouping. If some method is likely to be used in all implementations of that interface, remove it from there and put it in a different interface.

Good solutions for solving this principle can be adapter or facade patterns.

Dependency inversion

The main idea behind this principle is to depend upon abstraction, do not depend upon concretion. Recall the above sample with the user class that created the mailer inside. We said that it violates single responsibility principle. But the class needs the mailer. Ok then, it can use it, but we need to construct it somewhere else and inject it in the class via constructor or setter. The main idea is that we depend upon abstraction, and then we can inject the concrete implementation.

<br /> class User<br /> {<br /> private $mailer;</p> <p> // Constructor based injection<br /> public function User(Mailer_Interface $mailer)<br /> {<br /> $this-&gt;mailer = $mailer;<br /> }</p> <p> // Setter based injection<br /> public function setMailer($mailer)<br /> {<br /> $this-&gt;mailer = $mailer;<br /> }<br /> }<br /> 

It is not important whether you will use some dependency injection container, or do it by hand, but the main idea is to depend upon abstraction not upon concretion.


SOLID principle is a guideline for better software. Not respecting this guidelines will introduce difficulty in maintainability of the software and producing bugs and unexpected behaviour when you will try to change or add new functionality. Here is how you can remember them

  • Single Responsibility Principle: The class should have one reason of change.
  • Open for extension closed for modification: For extending a class the main idea is adding a new code in separate class instead of changing the existing one.
  • Liskov substitution principle: Functions that use pointers or references to base classes must be able to use objects of derived classes without knowing it. In simple words this means: The derived classes that extends some class must not change the behaviour.
  • Interface Segregation Pattern: manu client specific interfaces are better than one general specific interface.
  • Dependency inversion: Depend upon abstraction, do not depend upon concretion.
