Christian Schaefer: Using Zend Framework components in a Symfony2 project

      Comments Off on Christian Schaefer: Using Zend Framework components in a Symfony2 project

Christian Schaefer recently posted “Using Zend Framework components in a Symfony2 project”; a blog post about how he integrates Zend Framework components into his symfony2 projects.

Recently I wanted to use a part of the Zend Framework (v1) in my Symfony2 project.

After struggeling with the autoloading for a while and a little help from fellow developers on Twitter I found it actually to be quite easy.

This is a very short blog post. Outside of the code he used, that quote is about 1/2 of the post. It is simple, to the point and if you are a symfony2 programmer, really cool. If you are using symfony2 and need some of the cool tools that come with Zend Framework, this is a blog post you want to check out.

About Cal Evans

Many moons ago, at the tender age of 14, Cal touched his first computer. (We're using the term "computer" loosely here, it was a TRS-80 Model 1) Since then his life has never been the same. He graduated from TRS-80s to Commodores and eventually to IBM PCs.   For the past 10 years, Cal has worked with PHP and MySQL on Linux OSX, and when necessary, Windows. He has built on a variety of projects ranging in size from simple web pages to multi-million dollar web applications. When not banging his head on his monitor, attempting a blood sacrifice to get a particular piece of code working, he enjoys building and managing development teams using his widely imitated but never patented management style of "management by wandering around". Cal is happily married to wife 1.33, the lovely and talented Kathy. Together they have 2 kids who were both bright enough not to pursue a career in IT. Cal blogs at and is the founder and host of Nomad PHP
