Zend Web Development & Application Framework Development Services
Zend Framework is an open source framework that is used for PHP5. It uses an
object-oriented approach that makes development in Zend framework very easy and
organized. Zend Framework is a component library because it has many closely related
components which can be used almost independently.
Zend Framework also called ZF, has brought drastic improvement in the development of
PHP web applications. Zend Framework allows the creation of strong and powerful PHP
applications, which are far more advanced than the traditional ones. Zend
Frameworkhas become one of the world’s most popular website development frameworks
around the world that creates interactive and robust websites.
Why Zend framework?
The Zend framework has lots of features that help a coder. They are:
ZF is an Object-oriented
platform consisting of many OO concepts like inheritance. This allows
its components to be extended to a very good extent and also this helps
developers to vary with the components of ZF in their own way. This feature
helps in customization in many projects.
As in Zend framework,
everything needs to be used as objects it is possible for the codes to be made
reusable. Coders very rarely prefer to repeat their codes and hence reusability
turns out to be a very helpful feature.
The components of Zend
Framework are decoupled; meaning that all the components are separated. This
feature results in all the components having a different library, instead of
being a whole framework. But the specialty is the ‘glue framework’ which
lets the decoupled components to be glued or attached to the existing
Zend framework has a lot of
components those can be integrated. It can integrate many components starting
from user authentication to access control to resources.
There is no model
implementation in the Zend framework. This helps the developers by using
it in a versatile way to use the components to achieve effective results. There
are no restrictions to implementation of the Zend framework in this regard.
The flexible nature of
Zend framework helps developers to integrate external libraries into the
platform. This is only possible for the decoupled nature of the Zend framework.
The quality of coding is
very high. A Contributor License Agreement must be signed by every contributor.
This makes the code highly reliable, verified and easily understandable.
There is a Test-Driven
Development Practiceby which developers are required to write tests for
their code. This makes it very easy for the people concerned to exchange codes
and create documents for better understanding.
It is a complex framework which
is why there is a sharp learning curve in the Zend framework community. The
documentations that are easily understandable make it possible for the
developers to learn this technology really quick.
Zend framework platform offers
Certifications for both Zend Framework and PHP. This adds extra advantage to
emerging developers and learners to have an extra edge in their profile.
Usage of Zend framework
Zend Framework consists of a lot of professional PHP packages that can be used to
develop many website applications using PHP 5.6+. It uses a 100% object oriented
In Zend Framework,Composer is
used as a package dependency manager; PHPUnit
is used to test all packages; and Travis
CI is used as a Continuous Integration service. Also, PHP-FIG
standards are followed, and an application of PSR-7
for HTTP message interfaces is made.
Zend framework 3 is the latest version which has been developed by using version 1
and 2. The new version has many new features. Its basic MVC framework has now been
added with a PSR-7 middleware microframework. This new feature is known as
expressive. The other two new features are: PSR-7(which is an HTTP message
interface) implementation, Diactoros and a PSR-7 middleware foundation,Stratigility.
