PHP MVC - LoginController

Source: http://stackoverflow.com/questions/1737868/an-example-of-an-mvc-controller
Request example
Put something like this in your index.php:
<?php

// Holds data like $baseUrl etc.
include 'config.php';

$requestUrl = 'http://'.$_SERVER['HTTP_HOST'].$_SERVER['REQUEST_URI'];
$requestString = substr($requestUrl, strlen($baseUrl));

$urlParams = explode('/', $requestString);

$controllerName = ucfirst(array_shift($urlParams)).'Controller';
$actionName = strtolower(array_shift($urlParams)).'Action';

// Here you should probably gather the rest as params

// Call the action
$controller = new $controllerName;
$controller->$actionName();
Really basic, but you get the idea... (I also didn't take care of loading the controller class, but I guess that can be done either via autoloading or you know how to do it.)
Simple controller example (controllers/login.php):
<?php    

class LoginController
{
    function loginAction()
    {
        $username = $this->request->get('username');
        $password = $this->request->get('password');

        $this->loadModel('users');
        if ($this->users->validate($username, $password))
        {
            $userData = $this->users->fetch($username);
            AuthStorage::save($username, $userData);
            $this->redirect('secret_area');
        }
        else
        {
            $this->view->message = 'Invalid login';
            $this->view->render('error');
        }
    }

    function logoutAction()
    {
        if (AuthStorage::logged())
        {
            AuthStorage::remove();
            $this->redirect('index');
        }
        else
        {
            $this->view->message = 'You are not logged in.';
            $this->view->render('error');
        }
    }
}
As you see, the controller takes care of the "flow" of the application - the so-called application logic. It does not take care about data storage and presentation. It rather gathers all the necessary data (depending on the current request) and assigns it to the view...
Note that this would not work with any framework I know, but I'm sure you know what the functions are supposed to do.

Stretch a row if data overflows in jasper reports

It is very common that some columns of the report need to stretch to show all the content in that column. But  if you just specify the property " stretch with overflow' to that column(we called text field in jasper report world) , it will just stretch that column and won't change other columns, so the row could be ridiculous. Haven't find the solution from internet yet. So I just review the properties in iReport one by one and find two useful properties(the bold highlighted in example below) which resolve the problems.   example:
<band height="20" splitType="Stretch"> <textField isStretchWithOverflow="true" pattern="" isBlankWhenNull="true"> <reportElement stretchType="RelativeToTallestObject" mode="Opaque" x="192" y="0" width="183" height="20"/> <box leftPadding="2"> <pen lineWidth="0.25"/> …

Live - solving the jasper report out of memory and high cpu usage problems

I still can not find the solution. So I summary all the things and tell my boss about it. If any one knows the solution, please let me know.


Symptom: 1.The JVM became Out of memory when creating big consumption report 2.Those JRTemplateElement-instances is still there occupied even if I logged out the system
Reason:         1. There is a large number of JRTemplateElement-instances cached in the memory 2.The clearobjects() method in ReportThread class has not been triggered when logging out
Action I tried:      About the Virtualizer: 1.Replacing the JRSwapFileVirtualizer with JRFileVirtualizer 2.Not use any FileVirtualizer for cache the report in the hard disk Result: The japserreport still creating the a large number of JRTemplateElement-instances in the memory     About the work around below,      I tried: item 3(in below work around list) – result: it helps to reduce  the size of the JRTemplateElement Object                Item 4,5 – result : it helps a lot to reduce the number of  JRTemplateE…
