Always try to autowire the constructor even if it has not been configured explicitly. It doesn't make sense to autowire some methods but not the constructor. It will also allow to write shorter definitions when using method autowiring:

    Foo\Bar: { autowire: ['set*'] }

instead of

    Foo\Bar: { autowire: ['__construct', 'set*'] }

What is Symfony?

Symfony can be used to develop all kind of websites, from your personal blog to high traffic ones like Dailymotion or Yahoo! Answers.


The best way to install Symfony is to use the official Symfony Installer. It allows you to start a new project based on the version you want.
