Maugrim The Reaper writes on RESTful Web Services with Zend Framework

p. Paddy is back and blogging! He has had a stream of great posts since he came back online. Thursday he “posted a great REST tutorial”: Let’s steal a quick quote, shall we?

bq. We’ve all had over a week to absorb the new Zend Framework 0.20 release. Personally I’ve been loving it. The Zend Framework meets my requirements with flying colours.
For an upcoming project I intend implementing a RESTful web service. Back a few months ago when tinkering with the idea of a Technorati class for the Zend Framework, a reply from Davey Shafik highlighted the existence of a Zend_Rest_Client proposal. That proposal has since been implemented, and is now available from the Framework’s incubator directory. Also available is the focus of this tutorial – Zend_Rest_Server.

p. As will all of Paddy’s tutorials, it’s long on the “Why” and the “How”. It’s got lots of pretty source code for you to cut and paste along with detailed descriptions about what it all does. If you’ve been wanting to get into the Zend Framework but didn’t know where to start, you’ll want to take a look at this tutorial.

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 1.32, 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
