Zend Framework 2 is an open-source framework using object-oriented code, for developing web applications.When combined the components in the standard library form a powerful an extensible framework,offering a high performance ,robust MVC implementation.With a modular base it’s easily extensible, adapting to your needs so with other applications or frameworks you can use building blocks in combination.You can implement client libraries to access the most popular web services available, by using the ZendService. As Zend is a collection of classes, you can just load the components you need, to take advantage of the components as individual libraries, instead of the framework as a whole, cutting down on unnecessary project bloat. With no model implementation you are free to implement the components and framework in whatever way you need, free of predefined restraints.
Why Used Zend Framework?
Modular: Building blocks that can be used piece by piece with other applications or frameworks.
Secure: All the cryptographic and secure coding tools you need to do things right.
Extensible: Easy to adapt the framework to your needs.
Community: A vibrant and active contributor and user base for getting help and giving back.
High Performing: Engineered with performance tuning in mind.
Enterprise Ready: A proven history of success running business critical and high-usage applications.
