Miscelaneous changes

The following changes could, but don’t have to be relevant for the update of your OXID eShop. Read them carefully and decide if you have to take actions.

Exception handling

The exception handler was refactored in a way to catch more exceptions than before. Therefor you should have a look at the file log/EXCEPTION_LOG.txt after you completed the whole update to OXID eShop 6. Goal should be to have no exceptions in this file.

If you configured exception handling by overwriting the method oxShopControl::_setDefaultExceptionHandler(), you can do this from now on by calling the PHP method set_exception_handler() in the file modules/functions.php.

The format of the file log/EXCEPTION_LOG.txt changed a little bit, e.g. a data is included now:

Generic import and erp

If you rely on one of the following old classes, e.g. in a module, you should take care to use the equivalent classes as described. In OXID eShop 4.10 / 5.3, the code of the Generic Import was duplicated in the OXID eShop and the OXID ERP Interface. With OXID eShop 6, we cleaned up this thing: the code of the Generic Import is now only in the OXID eShop.


The files from core/objects are now in the directory Core/GenericImport/ImportObject. For some of them the inheritance chain changed (we describe here only the changes on class level):

  • the main base class changed from oxERPType to ImportObject, which is now abstract
  • oxERPType_Accessoire is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\Accessories2Article
  • oxERPType_Artextends is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\ArticleExtends
  • oxERPType_Article is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\Article
  • oxERPType_Article2Action is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\Article2Action
  • oxERPType_Article2Attribute is no longer available
  • oxERPType_Article2Category is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\Article2Category
  • oxERPType_Attribute is no longer available
  • oxERPType_Category is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\Category
  • oxERPType_Content is no longer available
  • oxERPType_Country is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\Country
  • oxERPType_Crossselling is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\CrossSelling
  • oxERPType_Order is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\Order
  • oxERPType_OrderArticle is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\OrderArticle
  • oxERPType_ScalePrice is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\ScalePrice
  • oxERPType_User is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\User
  • oxERPType_Vendor is now \OxidEsales\Eshop\Core\GenericImport\ImportObject\Vendor


In former OXID eShop versions the files oxerpbase.php, oxerpcsv.php and oxerpgenimport.php were there for handling the ERP requests. In the version 6.0 all this functionality is bundled in the class OxidEsalesEshopCoreGenericImportGenericImport. This class lives in the directory SHOP_ROOTsourceCoreGenericImport.


The DynPages are not available for OXID eShop 6 anymore. If you extended it, search for a different solution.
