Professional PHP Blog:
The rumors of PEAR's demise are greatly exaggerated
December 02, 2005 @ 06:45:29

From the Professional PHP Blog today, there's this new post with his perspective on the whole PEAR vs. eZ Components debate that's been going on.

Tobias Schlitt has a lengthy comparison of the new ezComponents and PEAR. He goes to great lengths to show that ezComponents and PEAR do not compete.

I've also seen some ill informed speculation that Zend PHP Framework will kill off PEAR. Um, not gonna happen. PEAR is a library, not a framework. Well, PEAR is a repository of libraries, not a framework. Well, I don't know what PEAR is, but its not a framework.

He also makes mention of the definition of a framework and, maybe, just maybe, compares it to the eZ components ("a reusable design for a specific class of software").

Do you agree? What's your take on the eZ components? Have you worked with them?
