when defining the namespace using the curly brace,no statement can't be accepted after the end of namespace,hence we are forced to use in the separate include file.
where as other format of defining namespace like 
namsespace a; works fine.

Reproduce code:

namespace nsUserInfo {
const vRole = 'user';

print "Expected Result :". \nsUserInfo\vRole;


Expected result:
Expected Result :user

Actual result:
Fatal error: No code may exist outside of namespace {} in /usr/local/apache/htdocs/php/nstest.php on line 7
