I am starting to learn CakePHP, and the use keyword seems to be everywhere, however I can not find documentation for it. Is it like import in Java? Here is an example from the CakePHP blog tutorial.
class ArticlesTable extends Table
public function initialize(array $config)
It means the same everywhere not just CakePHP.
You are importing a class from another namespace to yours.
Without it you would have to use:
class ArticlesTable extends \Cake\ORM\Table
Instead of the shorter version (Table) you are using.
