Zend framework spécialiste

  1. 1. Symfony and Zend: Juggling BetweenFrameworksThough Zend and Symfony, both are frameworks, their workand abilities are totally different from each other. Zend provideshuge scale of functions with improved interfaces to perform trickyjobs the web development specialists experience in day to day tasks.The developer or the Zend framework specialist (in Frenchzend framework spécialiste ) has to select libraries on their own,as such there is no precise way to perform things in Zend. InSymfony, the structure of directory is necessary and it is formed inconjunction with modules, whereas in Zend the step of creatingcommand-line modules is not needed. With many disparities, thereare few common points as well, like –Both are best for developing web applicationsWritten in PHPFollow the MVC (Model-View-Controller) archetypeThey are deeply Object Oriented.To move further more with the similarities and dissimilaritiesbetween Zend and Symfony, let’s consider the following points.1. As compared to Zend, Symfony is much comfortable forthe new learners. It is preferred due to easily availableguidance given by the various communities and authors.Zend lacks in this kind of assistance and existinginformation is designed for higher level users.2. The unit testing part in the framework is very important,in Symfony the unit testing support is integrated in it,while in Zend the PHP Unit is needed to run the unittests.
  2. 2. 3. Symfony gives the means to isolate and centralize taskability in a project, turning it simple for many others toalter with un-noticeable traces.4. One drawback in Zend is that it does not support ModelImplementation, and the reason why developers hesitateto use Zend Framework.5. While developing any business web application, whichwill have many pages, then it will be wise to use Symfonyfor faster and better results.6. If the Symfony framework specialist (in FrenchSymfony framework spécialiste ) needs to add any newfeature in the framework, the specialist can justdevelop/create a plugin, which can be used further inother endeavors. Thus saving lot of time and money.7. The nature of decoupling gives an upper hand to Zendframework and helps it to easily get combined with otherlibraries.Initially when Zend was introduced, it had many drawbacks,with due course of time, it developed its functionalities and thelatest version of Zend Framework 2.1.5 is capable of doing manytasks that were not possible in earlier versions. At the same time,Symfony has been an all-time favorite of developers due to its easyavailable guidance. Both frameworks have their specific reach andabilities. It totally depends on the client and requirement of project,which framework to be used and which should be eliminated.
