This post will describe a way to integrate Zend Framework 1 and Pimple. A complete working version of the code is available on github. Thankfully, Zend Framework 2 features its own Dependency Injection Container. Happy days. Still, if you're not prepared to wait, you may find this useful.
He shows how to add a resource plugin into the Pimple container - an entity manager that's part of Doctrine. He creates his controller, pulling the manager from the Pimple container and includes a unit test for the controller too (using PHPUnit, but he also suggests Mockery).
