Book Description

Considered the next generation of the Zend framework, Laminas is a high-performance PHP framework for creating powerful web applications with an evolutive architecture.

This book takes a hands-on approach to equip you with the knowledge of the Laminas framework necessary to start building web applications based on the reuse of loosely coupled components. You'll learn how to create the basic structure of a PHP web application divided into layers, understand Laminas' MVC components, and be able to take advantage of the Eclipse platform as a method for developing with Laminas. Step by step, you'll build an e-commerce application based on the technical requirements of a fictional business, and get to grips with implementing those requirements using Laminas components.

By the end of this web development book, you'll be able to build a completely secured MVC application in PHP language using Laminas.
