Overview

Zend Framework 2 is an open source framework for developing web applications. Zend Framework 2 uses 100% object-oriented code and utilises most of the new features of PHP, namely namespaces, late static binding, lambda functions and closures.

The component structure of Zend Framework 2 is unique; each component is designed with few dependencies on other components. ZF2 follows the SOLID object-oriented design principle. This loosely coupled architecture allows developers to use whichever components they want.

Model-View-Controller

MVC stands for Model View Controller. The model view controller pattern is the most used patterns for today’s world web applications. The MVC pattern separates an application in 3 modules: Model, View, Controller. 

  • The Model is responsible for business logic. 
  • The View is responsible for displaying the data provided by the model in a specific format. 
  • The Controller handles the model and view layers to work together.
