PHP has kind of bad reputation, comparing to Java. But it’s also possible to to OOP with PHP. There are different frameworks out there. One is the Zend Framework. So I gave it I try, and wrote a small protype, getting data from Camanda BPM – as Camunda offers a PHP SDK.

After setting up the whole development plattform – php, mysql, composer, git, eclipse-php and camunda, I started implementing.

First I just created the skeleton application. To get into zend, went thru the Album tutorial.

I’ll find the sources on github.
