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.

    Mike,
    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 :)

    Peace,
    Nate

    [...] 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. [...]

    Use wood filler to repair any deep blemishes. And thatís kitchen remodeling how
    you want it. If you’re looking for well constructed cabinets made kitchen remodeling with solid Maple and have great plywood sides.
    I gave real estate investors the lo-down on how
    to install the cabinets yourself.
