I've been doing some reading recently on the Zend Framework . I imagine it will be the default in a year or so as the framework matures and more hosts move to php5. I've found a nice tutorial on IBM's site:

http://www-128.ibm.com/developerworks/library/os-php-zend1/index.html

It's in 9 parts (the first 5 are online so far) and it goes through the basics of setting up a zend framework environment all the way through the MVC model (Model View Controller), and building an example app.

For those who want to learn what's coming in the next few years, some time spent on the zend framework won't be wasted smile

I swear I posted something on this a few months ago. Maybe I'm losing it.

I'm hoping to do a PHP + i5/OS + Zend Framework and impress the new company. Finally, I'll get a chance to put my ZCE to use smile

I remember you posting a link to a video on the beta site a few months back smile I'd like to see your app when you get some work done on it - I am considering something similar soon, except it will be zend framework/pdo/smarty - I'll be looking for beta testers, so everyone update to php5+ please smile

I took a brief look at Zend Framework a few weeks ago, for a project I need to implement for a friend. It is not production ready yet (it even stated that in a few places, one of whcih may have been at the zend framework site itself) so for now I cannot use it.

I've been taking a look at Symfony and so far am impressed by what I see. But, I haven't done any real development in it yet, and I'm a little concerned about some of the database pieces (using Propel) and how joins will work with lookup tables. When I get some time to actually try it, I'll post my findings.

www.cakephp.org is supposed to be a good one, tho I think zend may be more forward-looking. I imagine it will be winter before it starts to really take hold smile

Cake is another popular one, and I did look briefly at it, just by reading through their docs. It looked decent, but something struck me as being a little 'messy' though i couldn't put my finger on it.

Also, I hear performance could be a little lacking with Cake, but I can't substantiate that, and where I got it from. Symfony has some issues too, because of Propel, but that's being worked on (AFAIK).

Zend will probably be very good. The problem is, I'll bet it's at least a year until it's stable enough to be used in production. Symfony is not at 1.0 either, but it's currently far more mature and complete, and has gotten some rave reviews (though there sure are a lot of YAML files for configuration...).

Yeah, you may be right about zend. They are a month or so behind on their roadmap to version one:

http://framework.zend.com/issues/secure/BrowseProject.jspa?id=10000&subset=-1 - right now they're at 27 of 76 issues fixed for version 0.2

I think it'll still be ready to cook by winter tho - what's gonna drag is web hosts moving to php5+, it's only been out a year or so smile

Longer than that:

Version 5.0.0
13-Jul-2004

It's over 2 years already. Hosts are REALLY dragging their feet on upgrading to php5. A lot are dragging on going to MySQL 5 too, and that's been out 2 years or so as well (5.1 is in beta now)

A lot of webhosts utilize what is listed as *stable* their their control panel providers (and actually download the builds from them as well).

True, but most web hosts haven't updated that software in ages wink I know php5 works on the current versions of plesk and cpanel, it's a matter of rewarding those who stay current (with more business) and punishing those who keep passing the old crap off to us with less business. 2 years is a long time to not update smile

Here's a more basic tutorial for those who'd like to start from the beginning:

"The Zend Framework provides clean, stable code, complete with -- and perhaps most importantly -- clean intellectual property rights. PHP is gaining ground in the enterprise space, but if you're a Fortune 500 company, you don't want to take a chance on a module submitted to a repository that may or may not be some other company's intellectual property.

What is Zend Framework, exactly? The Zend Framework:
  • Is based on PHP.
  • Is object-oriented.
  • Uses the MVC paradigm.
  • Has open source contributors.
  • Has contributors who take responsibility for the fact that their code is not the intellectual property of someone else.

"

Noticed they've moved the release date for 0.2.0 to October 31, 2006 - I'm guessing they are planning an actual release and have a big bugfix push coming in the next couple weeks. smile

I am very proud to announce availability of the first production release of Zend Framework.

Many thanks to the scores of PHP developers who have worked for many months to make this product milestone possible. Zend Framework has followed a mission to provide classes that are extremely simple, yet powerful and extensible. Zend Framework is now the best class library available for PHP 5 web application development.

The Zend Framework project has developed solutions to solve frequent needs of web application developers, including the following areas:
  • Powerful MVC framework
  • Database access solution that balances ORM with efficiency and simplicity
  • Lucene-compatible search engine
  • Advanced I18N support
  • Robust authentication/authorization classes and input filtering
  • Rich web services client interfaces, including Google Data APIs and StrikeIron
  • Many other useful classes to make you as productive as possible
  • Thorough and high-quality test suites and documentation
  • Open-source development process with an active community provides continuous review and testing

The Zend Framework is the best PHP 5 framework to meet modern business needs, being licensed under the New BSD license. The Contributor License Agreement assures that all code has been provided freely.

Zend Framework is already in use in dozens of applications, so it is proven to be production-ready.

I found a decent forum the developers hang out at:

http://www.nabble.com/Zend-Framework-f15440.html

The forum script itself kinda reminds me of Matt Wright's work, but the info is good wink
