39.1. Introduction

Zend_Paginator is a flexible component for paginating collections of data and presenting that data to users.

The primary design goals of Zend_Paginator are as follows:

  • Paginate arbitrary data, not just relational databases

  • Fetch only the results that need to be displayed

  • Do not force users to adhere to only one way of displaying data or rendering pagination controls

  • Loosely couple Zend_Paginator to other Zend Framework components so that users who wish to use it independently of Zend_View, Zend_Db, etc. can do so
