abstract class Kernel implements KernelInterface, RebootableInterface, TerminableInterface

The Kernel is the heart of the Symfony system.

It manages an environment made of bundles.

Environment names must always start with a letter and they must only contain letters and numbers.

__construct(string $environment, bool $debug)

Parameters

string $environment
bool $debug

at line 93
__clone()

at line 104
boot()

Boots the current kernel.

at line 145
reboot(string|null $warmupDir)

Reboots a kernel.

The getCacheDir() method of a rebootable kernel should not be called while building the container. Use the %kernel.cache_dir% parameter instead.

Parameters

string|null $warmupDir pass null to reboot in the regular cache directory

at line 155
terminate(Request $request, Response $response)

Terminates a request/response cycle.

Should be called after sending the response and before shutting down the kernel.

Parameters

Request $request
Response $response

at line 169
shutdown()

Shutdowns the kernel.

This method is mainly useful when doing functional testing.

at line 190
Response handle(Request $request, int $type = HttpKernelInterface::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::MASTER_REQUEST or HttpKernelInterface::SUB_REQUEST)
bool $catch Whether to catch exceptions or not

Return Value

Response A Response instance

Exceptions

Exception When an Exception occurs during processing

at line 208
protected HttpKernel getHttpKernel()

Gets a HTTP kernel from the container.

Return Value

HttpKernel

at line 216
BundleInterface[] getBundles()

Gets the registered bundle instances.

Return Value

BundleInterface[] An array of registered bundle instances

at line 224
BundleInterface getBundle(string $name)

Returns a bundle.

Parameters

string $name Bundle name

Return Value

BundleInterface A BundleInterface instance

Exceptions

InvalidArgumentException when the bundle is not enabled

at line 238
string|array locateResource(string $name, string $dir = null, bool $first = true)

Returns the file path for a given bundle 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
