Zend Framework 1.8.0: New Tools and Cloud Connectivity

May 05, 2009

A command line scripting tool called Zend_Tool is available for the first time in version 1.8.0 of the Zend Framework, which also provides connectivity to Amazon's cloud computing service.

The command line scripting Zend_Tool in the new version of Zend Framework acts as a helper for common tasks for projects with diverse settings. The developers enhanced the Zend quickstart guide with details about Zend_Tool. The framework is under BSD licensing and one of the modules of the free Zend Server Community Edition, for which download is available here.

The Zend_Service_Amazon_S3 tool included in the framework is a PHP user-stream wrapper for Amazon's Simple Storage Service (S3) and provides connectivity to Amazon's Elastic Compute Cloud (EC2). The Zend Framework 1.8.0 release notes provide further details.

The Zend_Tool takes over many settings as a command line script

Zend Technologies CEO Andi Gutmans talked about the future of PHP and the Zend Server in a recent interview with Linux Magazine Online.
