Class SuperContainer This class is a PHP API for interation with SuperContainer. This provides an easy-to-use object-oriented API for uploading, downloading, and deleting files from a SuperContainer server, in addition to getting metadata about files on a SuperContainer server. This is especially useful for custom web publishing (CWP) FileMaker solutions using PHP.

Requirements This requires that PHP be built with curl library support enabled. There are no other dependencies.

Example Usage To use the SuperContainer lib, you first create a SuperContainer object: <?php $sc = new SuperContainer('http://server.mycompany.com:8020/SuperContainer/Files' ); ?>

Then you can use this object to upload a file: <?php $sc->upload('uploads/12345', '/path/to/my/local-file.txt'); ?>

Get metadata about an uploaded file: <?php $infoArray = $sc->getInfo('uploads/12345'); $fileName = $infoArray['name']; $fileSize = $infoArray['size']; $uploadDate = $infoArray['date']; ?>

Download the SuperContainer file to your local drive: <?php $localPath = $sc->download('uploads/12345', '/tmp'); ?>

Or delete an uploaded file: <?php $sc->delete('uploads/12345'); ?>

To handle file uploads in PHP, move the uploaded file using the move_uploaded_file function, then the upload function of SuperContainer. The following example illustrates handling a file upload, and better error handling. <?php $SC_BASE_URL = 'http://server.mycompany.com:8020/SuperContainer/Files'; $sc = new SuperContainer($SC_BASE_URL); if ($sc->getError()) die('Could not connect to SuperContainer server: ' . $sc>getError()); $uploadedFile = sys_get_temp_dir() . '/' . $_FILES['upload']['name']; move_uploaded_file($_FILES['upload']['tmp_name'], $uploadedFile) or die("Could not move uploaded file to $uploadedFile"); $folderPath = 'uploads/12345'; $sc->upload($folderPath, $uploadedFile) or die("Could not upload $uploadedFile to $folderPath: " . $sc->getError()); ?>

Constructor SuperContainer SuperContainer (string $baseUrl [, string $user [, string $password]])

Constructor which accepts a baseUrl, optional username, optional password. Note that values cannot be returned from a constructor, therefore it is difficult to validate the return value. To verify that the SuperContainer object was created correctly, you should call getError() immediately after creating the new object. Parameters: $baseUrl - The Base URL of your SuperContainer server, e.g. http://server.mycompany.com:8020/SuperContainer/Files $user - Optional username, only required if your SuperContainer server is password protected $password - Optional password, only required if your SuperContainer server is password

protected

getVersion getVersion ()

Note: If $destination is a directory, the downloaded file will be given the same name it had on the SuperContainer server. If $destination is not a directory, the file will be downloaded to $destination without altering the path at all. Note that the parent directory must exist for this operation to complete successfully. Parameters: $folderPath - The unique identifier for the supercontainer file to download $destination - The local destination path to download the file to
