Henrik has posted the second part of his look at using Doctrine, this time in combining it with Smarty. (Check out part one here).

We are creating an MVC setup where M is Doctrine, V is Smarty and C is our own stuff we do here. The Zend Framework has been reduced to just another component library for me now, I will pick goodies when I need them.

He shows how to be "empowered, not stifled" by the framework and to combine the two technologies in a flexible, lightweight platform. His example is a simple signup form that, on submit, saves the information to the database via the Doctrine layer.
