Zend Framework Tutorial Published

  • Posted by Mike Naberezny in PHP

    The April 2006 issue of php|architect is now available. This issue marks my first appearance in their pages with the cover article, “Introducing Zend Framework”.

    In the article, I begin by introducing Zend’s motivations for creating a framework and how it relates to their PHP Collaboration Project. More information on these topics can be found on the Zend Framework website. I then dive into a tutorial where I take a business scenario and show how the components included in the Zend Framework can be put to work.

    The article demonstrates a workflow where invoice data is retrieved from a web service, an invoice in PDF format is then built from that data, and finally the resultant file is emailed to a customer. The components Zend_XmlRpc_Client, Zend_Pdf, Zend_Mail, and Zend_Search_Lucene are explored along the way.

    I’d like to thank the team at php|architect for such a professional and enjoyable experience getting the article to print.

    Update: The article is now available for free download in PDF format here.

    Just finished reading your article in my PHP|Arch Magazine. It was a great read and an excellent example to show the power and simplicity of the ZF.

    I look forward to more articles in the future :)

    [...] To make the cover page, I first made a nice template using a drawing tool and then saved it in PDF format. I then used Zend_Pdf to write over the template with dynamic content. I first demonstrated this technique in this article. [...]
