Zend Framework - Index.php

Posted on 2012-04-03

So...I'm doing my first Zend Framework project and the index.PHP code is as such

"<?php

// Define path to application directory
set_include_path(implode(PATH_SEPARATOR, array(
    || define('APPLICATION_PATH', realpath(dirname(__FILE__) . '/../application'));

// Define application environment
defined('APPLICATION_ENV')
    || define('APPLICATION_ENV', (getenv('APPLICATION_ENV') ? getenv('APPLICATION_ENV') : 'production'));

// Ensure library/ is on include_path
set_include_path(implode(PATH_SEPARATOR, array(
    realpath(APPLICATION_PATH . '/../library'),
    get_include_path(),
)));

/** Zend_Application */
require_once 'Zend/Application.php';

// Create application, bootstrap, and run
$application = new Zend_Application(
    APPLICATION_ENV,
    APPLICATION_PATH . '/configs/application.ini'
);
$application->bootstrap()
            ->run();"

When I build the project it comes up on the index.phtml page....

Where in that "index.php" code does it direct to the "/application/views/scripts/index/index.phtml"?

I'm trying to understand how that gets routed and can't figure it out.

Thanks

The .phtml is part of the view (the V in MVC) and the index.php is the controller.  The view is invoked through $application - the instance of ZEND_APPLICATION.

Here is a quick-start link to get you started... http://framework.zend.com/manual/en/zend.application.quick-start.html

Note that ZEND Framework is fairly complicated.  I suggest watching some tutorials or reading some books.  It isn't a trivial exercise.

Also, I would also suggest that you run your project through your IDE (Netbeans, Eclipse, Zend Studio, etc.) in debugging mode so that you can step through all the classes and see how it all fits together.
