Storage Capabilities

Storage capabilities describe how a storage adapter works, and which features it supports.

To get capabilities of a storage adapter, you can use the method getCapabilities(), but only the storage adapter and its plugins have permissions to change them.

Because capabilities are mutable, you can subscribe to the "change" event to get notifications; see the examples for details.

If you are writing your own plugin or adapter, you can also change capabilities because you have access to the marker object and can create your own marker to instantiate a new instance of Zend\Cache\Storage\Capabilities.

Examples

Get storage capabilities and do specific stuff based on them

use Zend\Cache\StorageFactory;

$cache = StorageFactory::adapterFactory('filesystem');
$supportedDatatypes = $cache->getCapabilities()->getSupportedDatatypes();

// now you can run specific stuff in base of supported feature
if ($supportedDatatypes['object']) {
    $cache->set($key, $object);
} else {
    $cache->set($key, serialize($object));
}

Listen to the change event

use Zend\Cache\StorageFactory;

$cache = StorageFactory::adapterFactory('filesystem', [
    'no_atime' => false,
]);

// Catching capability changes
$cache->getEventManager()->attach('capability', function($event) {
    echo count($event->getParams()) . ' capabilities changed';
});

// change option which changes capabilities
$cache->getOptions()->setNoATime(true);
