17.1. Introduction

Zend Framework ships Dojo Toolkit to support out-of-the-box rich internet application development. Integration points with Dojo include:

  • JSON-RPC support

  • dojo.data compatibility

  • View helper to help setup the Dojo environment

  • Dijit-specific Zend_View helpers

  • Dijit-specific Zend_Form elements and decorators

The Dojo distribution itself may be found in the externals/dojo/ directory of the Zend Framework distribution. This is a source distribution, which includes Dojo's full javascript source, unit tests, and build tools. You can symlink this into your javascript directory, copy it, or use the build tool to create your own custom build to include in your project. Alternatively, you can use one of the Content Delivery Networks that offer Dojo (Zend Framework supports both the official AOL CDN as well as the Google CDN).
