Accessing concrete adapters

Sometimes it is necessary to retrieve the concrete adapter for the service that the Storage API is working with. This can be achieved by using the getAdapter() method.


Accessing the underlying adapter breaks portability among services, so it should be reserved for exceptional circumstances only.

Example 108. Using a concrete adapter

// the Simple Cloud Storage API doesn't support "clean bucket" operation
// the concrete adapter can be used to access this feature
$s3 $storage->getClient();
