How to add the tarzan(aws tools) as a third party?

By far, it seems that yii has no any cloud compute tools or extensions integrated, but the related product is more and more popular, like amazon cloud aws.

so i want to integrate the popular aws tools tarzan into yii as a third party.

the following are the steps :

1.make a dir ‘vendors’ under the ‘protected’ folder

2.copy the tarzan folder(tarzan_2.0.5) into it

3.add these lines at the begining of a controller class file:


require once('tarzan_2.0.5/tarzan.class.php');

{[url=""]the tarzan documentation[/url] said:  In your application (e.g. a specific PHP document), simply use require_once() (or require() or include_once() or include()) to add the tarzan.class.php file to your page. This will load the core Tarzan API.}
  1. add a test action,like that:

     public function actionTest()


     $sdb = new AmazonSDB();
      * Create a new SimpleDB domain.
     $domain = $sdb->create_domain('mysdb_test2');
     // As long as the request was successful...
     if ($domain->isOK())
         echo('create domain successfully');


but when i access the action, an error occurs:

PHP Error


YiiBase::include(AmazonSDB.php) [<a href=‘yiibase.include’>yiibase.include</a>]: failed to open stream: No such file or directory

Source File


00312: * @param string class name

00313: * @return boolean whether the class has been loaded successfully

00314: */

00315: public static function autoload($className)

00316: {

00317: // use include so that the error PHP file may appear

00318: if(isset(self::$_coreClasses[$className]))

00319: include(YII_PATH.self::$_coreClasses[$className]);

00320: else if(isset(self::$_classes[$className]))

00321: include(self::$_classes[$className]);

00322: else

00323: {

00324: include($className.’.php’);

00325: return class_exists($className,false) || interface_exists($className,false);

00326: }

00327: return true;

00328: }


00330: /**

00331: * Writes a trace message.

00332: * This method will only log a message when the application is in debug mode.

00333: * @param string message to be logged

00334: * @param string category of the message

00335: * @see log

00336: */

the tarzan.class.php also relies on SPL autoload to perform class file inclusion.

i am really confused why yii cannot include the tarzan class file.

does anyone has any suggestion?

and brother Qiang ,pls help me.


when i add this line at the begining of the function actionTest()

require_once(‘tarzan_2.0.5/sdb.class.php’); //i know it’s redundant, just make a try

the Stack Trace show:

Hey bro, did you ever figure this one out? …maybe it’s just a Simple DB thing? Tarzaan wrappers for Yii sound like a great idea. If you’ve made some progress on this, you should make a Yii extension for Tarzaan.

This happen because yii try to include the class name by it file name (see YiiBase.php:337) because class AmazonSDB exist in sdb.class.php you got the first faile, requre will not work well in yii. to solved it i can suggest this sed, running in tarzan root

(in your case tarzan_2.0.5)

  1. egrep “^class " * | sed -n 's/\([^:]\):class \([^ ]\).*/echo \”<?php include_once \\"\1\\";?>\" >.\/\2.php/p’ >l.l

  2. source l.l

this will create files named by the Tarzan classes using include_once to include he right file for relevant class.

I use include_once to prevent future errors because class AmazonSQS & AmazonSDB are located in the same file.

have fun.
