LegacyKernel Callback initialised N times inside loop

LegacyKernel Callback initialised N times inside loop

Thursday 23 October 2014 2:53:15 pm - 1 reply


Problem 1:

I'm using the LegacyKernel::runCallBack() to work with some custom contentTypes in the Symfony stack. I'm using the eZURI::transformURI() function to transform URI's to real links. The problem I'm having is that this operation is done inside a loop, and thus creating over 1400 Legacy kernels, if I understand the problem correctly. How can I generate the kernel once and reduce memory usage and execution time? 

The code I'm using as a gist:

Problem 2:

Another problem I'm having is with image-urls. As I work with old legacy nodes, I'm not sure how to correctly get the full image URL. I'm currently using the following code, and I belive it has to be a better way:

$xml = new \SimpleXMLElement($dataMap['image']->DataText);

$imageUrl = (string) $xml->attributes()->url->__toString();

Thanks in advance

Hi Thomas

1. Why are you using LegacyKernel for this?

2. You should not use legacy kernel to generate URLs. Inject the router instead and use generate() method:

// If you have the Location object
$url = $this->router->generate( $location );
// If you only have the locationId (formerly known as nodeId)
$url = $this->router->generate( 'ez_urlalias', array( 'locationId' => $locationId ) );
