Basic Zend package
  • If you like to use Zend classes inside your app: Make new package folder zend: packages/zend/ Inside make new folder pack and file bootstrap.php: packages/zend/pack/
    packages/zend/bootstrap.php Inside the pack folder you add the downloaded files from Zend Full/Minimal Inside the bootstrap.php file:
     * Go to packages/zend/pack and run these two lines to comment out ALL the require_once lines
     * find ./library/ -type f -name '*.php' -print0 | xargs -0 sed --regexp-extended --in-place 's/(require_once)/\/\/ \1/g'
     * find ./extras/library/ -type f -name '*.php' -print0 | xargs -0 sed --regexp-extended --in-place 's/(require_once)/\/\/ \1/g'
     * NOTE! This is not needed but recommended because there is no need to
     * use require_once in the class files anymore. This saves server loading 
     * time up to 25% when using Zend classes.
    $paths = array(
    set_include_path(implode(PATH_SEPARATOR, $paths));
    // Startup the Zend Loader and Autoloader (Zend < 2.0)
    require __DIR__.DS.'pack'.DS.'library'.DS.'Zend'.DS.'Loader.php';
    require __DIR__.DS.'pack'.DS.'library'.DS.'Zend'.DS.'Loader'.DS.'Autoloader.php';
    /* End of file bootstrap.php */

    Do not forget to add zend to packages in your application config. NOTE: This is only for Zend < 2.0 Hopefully 2.0 has autoloading like Fuel PHP.
  • @snrp: thanks! That was it.
  • Hi ! I am trying to mess around integrating an ACL library. I saw your post on thought I'd give Zend ACL a try but run into problems.
    Most likely related to my understanding - or lack thereof - of namespaces etc. I integrated the Zend packages as you described and that worked like a charm. This is how it starts in a sample controller:
    namespace Myauth;
    class Controller_Myauth extends \Controller_User &#123;
        public function before()
        public function action_index()
            $acl = new \Zend_Acl();
            $acl::addRole(new \Zend_Acl_Role('guest'));

    but there the trouble also begins....
    fuel yells at me with
    ErrorException [ Notice ]: Undefined property: Myauth\Controller_Myauth::$_roleRegistry
    ErrorException [ Error ]: Call to undefined method Myauth\Controller_Myauth::_getRoleRegistry() (

    both in the fuel/packages/zend/pack/library/Zend/Acl.php file. That does resolve in a way if I replace

    but I don't really want to do that.... or do I have to? Could you (or anybody) shed any light on what to do about this? Thanks for your help! mic
  • ErrorException [ Notice ]: Undefined property: Myauth\Controller_Myauth::$_roleRegistry

    When getting errors such as this (where a property of your class is 'looked for' in the controller) it is usually bk you do a static function call, then inside the static function there is a not so static $this->something. And sure enough there it is:
    $acl::addRole(new \Zend_Acl_Role('guest'));

    I have played a bit with ZF (mainly this guy's excelent video tutorial: That is supposed to be:
    $acl->addRole(new \Zend_Acl_Role('guest'));

    ZF doesnt use static calls too much.

Howdy, Stranger!
