Zend Framework is used to develop web applications and services. It utilizes a completely object oriented code and hence eliminating the one most critical disadvantage associated with the php. It utilizes new features provided in the latest version of PHP like of namespaces, lambda functions and late static bindings. They have recently releases the second version of their framework which essentially is an update over their earlier release Zend framework v1.
Benefits of new Zend Framework release
The new framework is the result of careful observation of version one. After that as per the requirements of the users the new bundle has been prepared. In developing the framework version two the user pattern of the first is utilised and best practises are considered for the deployment. The case is that in near future they will stop supporting the earlier version of the framework. So it is better to switch as soon as possible.
Each component of the framework is unique. It adopts and utilizes solid OOPS design principles. This means that a coder is free to code in whatever he or she may want and is rather assisted with the framework. It also supports installations like Composer and Pyrus. These installations further helps in the usefulness of the framework. Zend utilizes PHPUnit for testing its code and Travis CI for checking code integrity. While these services can be removed from the framework as they are not essential part of the offering but it is highly promoted to use them as they are completely safe and assists in the project maintenance and development.
