Jobs

Definition#

  • Jobs are simple classes that can do one thing or multiple related things.
  • Job is a name given to a class that is usually created to be queued (it's execution is usually deferred for later, after the execution of previous Jobs are completed).
  • Jobs can be scheduled to be executed later by a queuing mechanism (a queue system like beanstalkd).
  • When a Job class is dispatched, it performs its specific job and dies.
  • Laravel's queue worker will process every Job as it's pushed onto the queue.

Principles#

  • A Container MAY have more than one Job.

Rules#

  • All Jobs MUST extend from App\Ship\Parents\Jobs\Job.

Folder Structure#

- app
- Containers
- {section-name}
- {container-name}
- Jobs
- DoSomethingJob.php
- DoSomethingElseJob.php

Code Samples#

DemoJob#

class DemoJob extends Job
{
private $something;
public function __construct(array $someData)
{
$this->something = $someData;
}
public function handle()
{
foreach ($this->something as $thing) {
// do whatever you like
}
}
}

Check the parent Job class.

Usage from Action#

// using helper function
dispatch(new DemoJob($someData));
// manually
app(\Illuminate\Contracts\Bus\Dispatcher\Dispatcher::class)->dispatch(New DemoJob($someData));

Execute Jobs Execution#

For running your Jobs checkout the Tasks Queuing page.
