If you need to develop large and robust applications, Zend is your best programming system. Our expert company will guide you through the design and development process of your PHP application with Zend.
Zend Framework is an easy-to-use and object-oriented open-source software framework. Mainly, it focuses on developing PHP and MYSQL web applications. It provides simplicity through object-oriented practices, bug-free code is business-friendly, and most importantly, highly secure.
The Zend Framework focuses on security and reliability based on Web 2.0. Zend also focuses on the development of API development applications.
We are capable of developing any type of web application such as an advertisement portal, modules and plugins and a business tool for companies.
The Zend framework has the advantage of being an open-source package, which clearly means that it enjoys the strong support of a large community of developers. It is also supplemented by documentation of more than 500 pages, available in 6 languages. You can easily find the reference guide as well as the uses and the different tools to build software applications. There are also several unofficial forums associated with Zend Framework: such as Stack Overflow which allows developers to post their latest updates, tips and articles to help the community resolve a variety of issues. When it comes to certifications, Zend has the advantage of offering the most focused and structured certification program in this area. At Zend, every standard step has a certification: from the basic program for beginners, through to more elaborate programs for experienced PHP programmers.
The Model-View-Controllers (MVC) structure helps to differentiate the business logic of the user interface. The Zend Framework also has the advantage of improving the front controller model.
Model represents the structure of your data; through its interaction with the database. Views contain the templates of the pages and the results. Controllers take care of the requests made on the page and combine the whole.
This type of separation allows for greater readability and easier to handle code.
Zend Framework contains a large library of components that allows you to choose from different types or subtypes of components available. So you never need to use more than you need. If you want to use the PDF library, you can select this option without having to use the other components of the framework - this is called a limitless use architecture. There are some components that are dependent on each other, such as the Date Picker library that goes with the Zend Form component.
The number of components is gradually increasing every day, which makes the Zend framework a huge component library.
Since almost all the components are ready for use, you hardly spend time setting up the initial structure of the application. The execution time of your PHP application is therefore considerably reduced and its performance is thus increased. Thanks to this framework, you no longer have to download and install third-party libraries (such as jQuery or Date Picker etc.) since these are included in the Zend Framework.
Coming from the PHP programming language, the Zend framework offers a generic method of data caching. Zend gives you the choice of a variety of caching techniques that you simply need to enable to increase the throughput of your applications.
Zend Framework is a solution known for the quality of its code. All components have approximately 80-90% coverage, giving you the flexibility to customize or expand them. What's more, when you extend components, you can use the de facto available test tool (PHP Unit) to test your component. This is a practical aspect when it comes to continuous developments for large projects involving a large number of people. You will agree that it is not practical to have to manually test every component of an application each time it is changed. It is therefore easier to use the PHP Unit to automate its control.
Using the input and output filtering functions manually to protect your application can be overwhelming, and you might even forget them every now and then. With Zend Framework, most of these tasks can be automated.
Simplicity is omnipresent in Zend: Whether in its structure with the principle of the singularity of components (reduction of the functional perimeter of a component), in the code which is exemplary readability or even in the display of views which does not require a template engine on you and relies on PHP's ability to extend HTML display.
If giving a subjective definition of the elegance of the code is not easy. The notion of elegance can be compared to a combination of simplicity, modularity and performance.
And in this context, Zend, by its simplicity, the modularity of its architecture and by the performances it offers can without too much difficulty be considered as an elegant framework.
If we consider the memory size of the Framework or the loading time, Zend appears to be a frugal Framework compared to its main competitors.
This is not a surprise if we consider that it is one of the objectives of the project which made several structure choices in this direction (Singularity of components, dynamic instantiation).
Often ignored, the quality of the documentation is of particular importance in the case of a web framework. The documentation for Zend is excellently compiled to ensure easy understanding.
Even if the benchmarks are always to be taken with hindsight, Zend is regularly well placed in terms of performance. And if some little-known Frameworks like Siler, Tipsy (which is no longer supported) seem to offer better performance, they are far from having the maturity, functionality and user base of Zend. If we compare Zend with its main competitors, namely Laravel and Symfony, the result is clear in favor of Zend.
