Migration from Zend Framework 1ΒΆ

This guide is intended to provide tools and strategies for migrating from Zend Framework 1 to Zend Framework 2. There is no single solution that will work for every project, nor any tools to automate the process.

In this guide, we will cover the following:

  • Tools for namespacing your code.
  • Tools for consuming Zend Framework 2 within your Zend Framework 1 application.
  • Strategies for running Zend Framework 2 and Zend Framework 1 in parallel.
  • Strategies for making your code easier to migrate, focussing primarily on clean separation of your domain logic and the MVC layer.
  • Strategies for migrating the MVC layer.
  • Strategies for migrating your domain layer.
