Cache layer for slow PHP objects

Wednesday, March 17th, 2010

When I was measuring execution time in a new PHP application using Doctrine and Zend_Date, I discovered lots of time is consumed by the code. It will slow down the app really if you show 50 objects in a list on a page when every object uses 100ms to list the results. It’s hard to get that library code fast, it’s easier to write a cache class around the object.
