Zend Framework Screencast: QEDWiki from Zend and IBM
QEDWiki is one of the most sophisticated applications to have been built on top of the Zend Framework so far. It is an “application wiki,” which extends the wiki concept to allow users to drag and drop application elements onto a wiki page. These elements connect through web services and the result is a composite application that solves a real business need. The Zend Framework home page on to describe the project.
IBM and Zend have an ongoing partnership to foster PHP development, and this is just one example of how they are working together. Much of the code that IBM has developed for QEDWiki is in the process of being given back to the community in the form of contributions to the Zend Framework. The widgets themselves are PHP classes that are executed via AJAX to render themselves. Most of the widgets used in the demos have both a design-time and a run-time rendering. Check out this impressive demonstration by Stewart Nickolas and learn more about the QEDWiki.
