Times have changed now and developers have an array of options that help them make better enterprise apps and websites. Zend Framework (ZF), has become a popular and widely adopted framework to develop PHP web applications. It is an open source, object-oriented web application framework that is implemented in PHP 5 and is licensed under the new BSD License, and requires the signature of a Contributor License Agreement (CLA) based on the Apache Software Foundation’s CLA.
