Details

in HttpKernelInterface at line line 42
Response handle(Request $request, int $type = self::MASTER_REQUEST, bool $catch = true)

Handles a Request to convert it to a Response.

When $catch is true, the implementation must catch all exceptions and do its best to convert them to a Response instance.

Parameters

Request $request A Request instance
int $type The type of the request (one of HttpKernelInterface::MASTERREQUEST or HttpKernelInterface::SUBREQUEST)
bool $catch Whether to catch exceptions or not

Return Value

Response A Response instance

Exceptions

Exception When an Exception occurs during processing

at line line 32
BundleInterface[] registerBundles()

Returns an array of bundles to register.

Return Value

BundleInterface[] An array of bundle instances.

at line line 39
registerContainerConfiguration(LoaderInterface $loader)

Loads the container configuration.

Parameters

LoaderInterface $loader A LoaderInterface instance

at line line 44
boot()

Boots the current kernel.

at line line 51
shutdown()

Shutdowns the kernel.

This method is mainly useful when doing functional testing.

at line line 58
BundleInterface[] getBundles()

Gets the registered bundle instances.

Return Value

BundleInterface[] An array of registered bundle instances

at line line 70
BundleInterface|BundleInterface[] getBundle(string $name, bool $first = true)

Returns a bundle and optionally its descendants by its name.

Parameters

string $name Bundle name
bool $first Whether to return the first bundle only or together with its descendants

Return Value

BundleInterface|BundleInterface[] A BundleInterface instance or an array of BundleInterface instances if $first is false

Exceptions

InvalidArgumentException when the bundle is not enabled

at line line 100
string|array locateResource(string $name, string $dir = null, bool $first = true)

Returns the file path for a given resource.

A Resource can be a file or a directory.

The resource name must follow the following pattern:

"@BundleName/path/to/a/file.something"

where BundleName is the name of the bundle and the remaining part is the relative path in the bundle.

If $dir is passed, and the first segment of the path is "Resources", this method will look for a file named:

$dir/<BundleName>/path/without/Resources

before looking in the bundle resource folder.

Parameters

string $name A resource name to locate
string $dir A directory where to look for the resource first
bool $first Whether to return the first path or paths for all matching bundles

Return Value

string|array The absolute path of the resource or an array if $first is false

Exceptions

InvalidArgumentException if the file cannot be found or the name is not valid
RuntimeException if the name contains invalid/unsafe characters

at line line 107

Return Value
