Zend Framework 2 Integration in Zend Studio

This tutorial will describe how to develop with Zend Framework 2 (ZF2) in Zend Studio. Zend Studio incorporates built-in tools that allow developers to use ZF2 more efficiently: you can create new Zend Framework-based projects with just a few steps and minimal development time. You can create ZF2 modules, view helpers and controllers, get content assist for services, and take advantage of other ZF2 features to make your coding more productive.

Tutorial Content

In this tutorial we are going to create a sample web site with a downloads page. The application will be constructed of two ZF2 modules, and will use a sample service and a view helper.

Specifically, you will learn:

  • To create a new ZF2 project in Zend Studio
  • To deploy the project on a local Zend Server
  • To add and configure a new ZF2 module, and to configure its controller
  • To add a new ZF2 view helper
  • To use the MVC Outline view
