Some important notes regarding zend framewrok

Before staritng with creating new zend simple application please read componenet which are listed below from zend manual.







Basic Task of zend_controller_front in sequence. Request –> Router –> Dispatch –> Respone.

Request –> Send Request object Router –> It check and make sense with controller and action, that means it say that which controller will be use and which action of that contoller will be use.

Dispatch –> It dsipatch to the specific action to specific controller and if no controller or action found then it will take default action or default contoller.

Response –> Send response object.

URI –> The part which comes after BASEURL. ex.

URI == modules/controller/action/param1/val1/param2/val2

Zend_Controller_Action::__construct() performs some important tasks, such as registering the request and response objects, as well as any custom invocation arguments passed in from the front controller.

To redirect to new page there are two methods.

1._forward($action, $controller = null, $module = null, array $params = null):

2._redirect($url, array $options = array()):

$view = new zend_view();


now this will return only render view of this html page so to display it on the screen we have to use either print or echo, so correct way to use this render property is render(‘index.phtml’); ?>

// bad view-script practice: echo $this->variable;

// good view-script practice: echo $this->escape($this->variable);

ErrorHandler and ViewRenderer are plugind for zend_controller_front and to disable that pugins or any plugin use statement and syntex which shows as under

$front = new Zend_Controller_Front

$front-> (‘noErrorHandler’,true);

$front-> (‘noViewRender’,true);
