Database Gateway Plugins

VuFind uses Zend Framework's table/row gateway classes to communicate with the database. The plugin managers described here control how gateway objects are retrieved.

Table Gateways

Key Plugin Details

Default Namespace: \VuFind\Db\Table

Base Class: \VuFind\Db\Table\Gateway

Service Locator Configuration Section in module.config.php: ['vufind']['plugin_managers']['db_table']

Service Manager Name for Service Locator: VuFind\DBTablePluginManager (VuFind 2.x-4.x), VuFind\Db\Table\PluginManager (VuFind 5.0+)

See the General Plugin Information page for more details on VuFind plugins.

Row Gateways

:!: Prior to VuFind 4.0, each table class specifies the associated row class, so if you need to override a row class, you also need to override the table class, if only to change how it loads rows. Starting in release 4.0, the row-specific plugin manager was added to allow direct row overriding.

Key Plugin Details
