Many people call Zend a “connecting” framework, which is a way of referencing its component nature. Zend is an object-oriented , MVC – based framework that only lets you download the components you want as separate libraries.
In other words, Zend allows you to focus only on the components and functions you want and ignore everything else. Thanks to this approach and the object-oriented nature of the framework, you can reuse a large amount of the code you wrote, which is always good news. In addition, it is quite simple to integrate the platform with external libraries to further expand its functionality.
- Use Object Oriented PHP with MVC Architecture
- Reuse your code with platform design
- Easily integrate Zend with external libraries
- Use only the components you want and ignore everything else.
However, Zend has several drawbacks. For example, the platform is quite difficult to master. In our experience, if you are transitioning from a tool like Laravel to Zend, the transition can be quite complicated, and it can be somewhat intimidating if this is your first structure. However, Zend may be the best PHP environment if you have development experience and you like object oriented coding.
