In this new post to his blog Rob Allen introduces one of the key concepts in the upcoming version of the Zend Framework (v2) - modules.
A Zend Framework 2 application is made up of a number of modules which each contain the controllers, models, views and other support code required to implement a specific part of the application.
He covers a few different topics:
- where modules can be located
- the directory organization inside them
- setting up a module of your own (a "bare bones" example)
- how to use the init() method to set configure your module when it's loaded
A site has also been started (official) to share other user-created modules with the rest of the Zend Framework community - modules.zendframework.com.
