Many to Many with Zend_Db and Zend_Form

Exposing many-to-many in a practical application took a little more time and effort than I had anticipated. With that in mind, I to use this opportunity to explore how Zend_Form, Zend_Controller and Zend_Db could be integrated. This is the first in a two part set looking at our data model.

By the end of the second video, you should have a project that explores the following concepts with Zend_Db:

  • A user has many tasks (many-to-many)
  • A task has many users (many-to-many)
  • A user has one contact type (one-to-many)
  • A contact type has many users (many-to-one)

Unfortunately, this only gets through setting up the database, CRUD with Tasks and setting up the Many-to-Many classes in Zend_Db. The next video will cover how we can write a Zend_Form that will map the associations between the users and tasks. Enjoy!

If you can’t wait till the next video, grab the code on google code and play with it firsthand.
