Zend Framework: A Beginner's Guide uses an example application to illustrate important concepts and techniques. This example application is iteratvely built over the course of the book, and serves as a testbed for the reader to gain practical, hands-on experience with Zend Framework in a sandboxed environment. The code archives for this example application are organized by chapter, and can be directly downloaded and used in a Zend Framework development environment.

The example application is conceived such that it covers common requirements encountered in day-to-day application development: static pages, input forms, image upload, login-protected administration panel, data paging and sorting, multiple output types, and keyword search. Implementing these features requires one to understand the nitty-gritties of form processing, input validation, session management, authentication and security, CRUD database operations, Web service APIs, and integration with third-party libraries. As such, it is a good starting point to begin understanding application development with the Zend Framework.
