Integrating symfony and Zend Framework
Comments are closed.
Stefan has done a great job showing us how easy it is to use the power of Symfony within Zend Framework applications and vice versa.
It became clear to me that using both frameworks, you no longer have an excuse that building a solution is a hard job... the frameworks are there to help you and Stefan shows you how !
A very interesting presentation, up to now I've only been using Zend Framework as a component library and didn't even knew that Symfony had the same option.
Thanks to Stefan's excellent explaination and the heaps of code in the presentation everything became clear pretty fast.
It definitly caught my attention to go and look what Symfony components can do for me.
I think the fact that the 'big' (aka. enterprise-level) PHP frameworks acknowledge each other's strong points and make an effort to make integration possible, is great.
Stefan gave a great introduction and some code examples on how to start using components from other frameworks in your framework of choice, starting today.
Being not familiar with Symfony I found it very interesting to learn about some of the components it offers that can be used without using all of Symfony.
Generaly speaking there was good focus on the fact that there's no need to stick to just one framework.
Maybe some more attention on the specific strengths that make either framework more suitable as the leading one in a specific project could be nice.
