    Using Zend Framework

    David_F57 Level 5

      Is anyone using zend with Wamp successfully, I have revisited this "framework" a few times but revert back to amfphp because at least it works, now when I go to start with zend it copies itself to my host then when I go to create classes I get an error if I try to proceed wamp gets trashed.

       

      image of error attached.

          I had the same problems, and it's not linked to using wamp I think ( using easyphp).

           

          I think it's because it needs to be installed at the root level of your web server ( in the www folder), and flash builder actually installed it in my project folder, so I copied the zend framework in my www folder and it worked ( I did not delete the original folder tho).From then on, services worked fine.

           

          anyway, try moving the zend framework folder around, it should do then.

            Thanks for the tip, but I tried moving things around, zend did actually install into the www folder of wamp but it seems there are bits missing such as a gateway. Anyway vapour expands to fill space which is then bloat which pretty much covers zend, an over-engineered piece of bloatware. Anyway i'll use the old amfphp, zend just isn't worth the hassle(which pretty much is where the zend framework has always been) .

              can I suggest another option

               

              check out the ZendServer Community edition - has everything WAMP has + loads more

               

              I'm having some success using Flex 4 / Zend - hurry up MAX so more examples code comes out

                  Did the server settings entered in the new project wizard validate? Which version of WAMP are you trying to use?

                    The server was validated and zend installed into the wamp webfolder correctly, its just that when attempting to create a sample class things fail then wamp becomes unusable even after a reboot. I use wamp 2.0i.  Anyway the upshot is that from the beginning the zend framework has been more a hinderance than a help its a pity that Adobe didn't strike a deal with the author of AMFPhp(who unfortunately went to zend) and just give us a proper set of AMF classes instead of a low performance framework which is more about bloat than functionality and even less about AMF.

                     

                    Anyway as I said earlier i have better things to do with my time and I now have the deprecated parts of AMFPhp sorted so its back to something that works without the headaches.
