Zend framework is firstly designed for experienced professional developers, who have been part of international teams for years. With Zend Framework one could harness nuances of high scale eLearning, eCommerce and eBanking applications without fuss and implement robust, market demands meeting solutions. Zend Framework ships simple, without modules installed, so firstly to build up bare-bones for simple modular app, you will have to preinstall the set of GitHub hosted plugins and modules. Added to the mix, Microsoft is one of the main sponsors of the Zend Framework project, so your company would experience state of the art technologies mash up right away from the beginning of implementing theoretical application project to code stack. All in all, several international associations are awaiting you to enroll to enhance the experience of using Zend Framework 2.
spring boot allow my team to start building web services quickly and package it in a stand alone application
Play is a central framework/component/library (not sure what to call things these days) in Scala. We <3 Scala, and therefore we <3 Play.
Play is on of several frameworks we are prototyping and vetting for various public-facing websites, and may ultimately be the framework behind the main datapile.io website.
Spring-Boot allows us to create stand-alone web servers and helps us configure many of our dependencies with sane default, while maintaining flexibility where we need it.
I used Play to build a configuration UI for the service, which let you create and manage the menus (a hierarchical tree of options and actions).
The older parts of our core are still using ZF1. We are migrating to simpler framework agnostic controllers with 3rd party components.
