Creating Web Services with Zend Framework*
These days, there are a multitude of ways to get up and running with creating web services. PHP is well-known for its roots in development of internet applications, but isn't necessarily the best solution on its own. Whether you need a service based on REST, XML-RPC, SOAP, or JSON-RPC, Zend Framework has you covered.
This session will provide a general overview of each approach to creating web services, criteria for selecting the best approach for a project, and what related components in the Zend Framework can help to get the job done. Included will be Zend_Rest, Zend_XmlRpc, Zend_Soap, and Zend_Json_Server for creating web services as well as supplementary action helpers and Zend_Test for unit testing.
