Easy PHP with the eZ Components library


Article from Issue 87/2008

eZ Components is a free enterprise-level PHP library that uses state-of-the-art language features. We show you the library’s potential on the web and at the command line.

The rise of PHP has spawned a new industry in tools for PHP development. By providing standard, reusable components, these tools simplify development and speed up the coding process. One of the entries in this race is eZ Components, a generic PHP library created by eZ Systems, the makers of the eZ Publish Content Management System. The eZ Components library, which is available for download under the open- source New BSD license, offers an easy-to-use collection of standard components designed to reduce errors and save development time. We demonstrate a few interesting features of the eZ Components library and put those features to work on a sample application that forwards email messages.
