Zend Framework: Zend_Amf Component Proposal

Proposed Component Name Zend_Amf
Developer Notes
Proposers Wade Arnold
Zend Liaison Stanislav Malyshev
Revision 1.0 - 1 January 2008: Initial Draft. (wiki revision: 13)

Table of Contents

1. Overview

Zend_Amf_Server provides Action Message Format (AMF3) support for the Zend Framework that is compatible with the Flash Player 9 and above. The Adobe Integrated Runtime (AIR) and Flash Player uses AMF to communicate between an application and a remote server. AMF encodes remote procedure calls (RPC) into a compact binary representation that can be transferred over HTTP/HTTPS protocol. Objects and data values are serialized into this binary format, which increases performance as the AMF serialization is a highly optimized procedure in the Flash Player. Zend_Amf_Server will act as an AMF gateway to the Zend Framework by exposing through introspection custom class objects and functions that will respond as callbacks through the Zend_Amf_Server gateway.

  • Zend_Server_Reflection_Method

5. Theory of Operation

Zend_Amf_Server is composed of several components, ranging from the server itself to request, response, encoding, decoding, and fault objects.

To implement Zend_Amf_Server, the developer must attach one or more classes or functions to the server instantiation, via the setClass() and addFunction() methods.

The Zend_Amf_Server will decode request objects that are received via php://input and deserialized the request and check for an existing instantiated session. Zend_Amf_Request will check the AMF header for the matching name space of the requested remote object to be called. The remote object will be instantiated and the result of the method call will be serialized via Zend_Amf_Vaslue and returned to the requested http connection via Zend_Amf_Response.
