In this new post to his blog Rob Allen introduces one of the key concepts in the upcoming version of the Zend Framework (v2) - modules.

A Zend Framework 2 application is made up of a number of modules which each contain the controllers, models, views and other support code required to implement a specific part of the application.

He covers a few different topics:

  • where modules can be located
  • the directory organization inside them
  • setting up a module of your own (a "bare bones" example)
  • how to use the init() method to set configure your module when it's loaded

A site has also been started (official) to share other user-created modules with the rest of the Zend Framework community - modules.zendframework.com.
