In the posted code? No. But you could use from the external script:

$product2 = new BookProduct("book1", "harry", "harrelson", 4, 30 );
print $product2->getNumberOfPages();
print "\n";

Open in new window


I think that is only an example...

Not in the script you show here.

But this whole script looks like a lot of functions that would be "included" in other scripts and used there.

They are, in the declaration of your classes. They're getters.

On your code, they are not used on your 2 objects, but they are available.
