You wish not to use strings for referencing class names. Better use \App\Some\Foo::class instead of "\App\Some\Foo" because typing-mistakes can be quickly found with first way but are hidden away with 2nd method as it is only a string where PHP cannot check if the class reference is still valid.

Example: \Apps\Some\Foo::class <-- see the small s in it? It will be quickly found by PHP.

@shojibflamon you properly want to compare type-safe, means $item === "", else maybe (int) 0 will be converted to NULL which is not intended (e.g. you have a database column is_enabled which has tinyint(1) unsigned not null default 1 then you surely want 0 be set!
