New in the Zend Developer Zone today is this post looking at the Zend Server GUI and how you can extend it to add in data from the Data Cache API.
As the GUI of Zend Server is based on the open-source Zend Framework, you can easily extend it. This article demonstrates how to integrate new functionality to Zend Server which makes it possible see the content and some meta information of cached items. For this example I use the Data Cache API from Zend Server, but in combination with the Zend Framework component Zend_Cache and its Zend_Cache_Backend_ZendServer_Disk backend adapter.
He steps through the creation of a new Zend_Cache object and an implementation of the Zend_Cache_Backend_Interface as well as making the new tab for the data to live under in the GUI. The interface is dropped in place and a view and model is added and your end result can look like this.
