Zend Framework (ZF)

Definition - What does Zend Framework (ZF) mean?

The Zend Framework (ZF) is an open-source framework for creating object-oriented Web applications using PHP 5. The goal of the framework is to simplify the development of Web applications using object-oriented processes that allow the creation of extensible classes and objects and to promote best practices for building Web 2.0 Web services and applications.

Techopedia explains Zend Framework (ZF)

The Zend Framework is also considered as a component library because of its collection of loosely coupled components that developers can make use of independently, more or less. It also provides a model-view-controller (MVC) framework that can be used as the basis for an application structure for applications created with it. As an object-oriented framework, it provides reusable and extensible code that can be shared among different applications, which allows them to scale easily to the enterprise level.

ZF is licensed under the Open Source Initiative-approved New BSD License. It was initially released on March 3, 2006, by Zend Technologies.
