Release 1.1 created on 2018-12-10 by Frank Hein, maxence operations GmbH, Germany.

This version is based on Zend Service Manager 3.x and is backwards compatible with it.


mxc-servicemanager is a component compatible to zend-servicemanager 3.x. It can be used to substitute zend-servicemanager 3.x versions. Different from zend-servicemanager this component does not support PHP 5.6.

For mxc-servicemanager we refactored several parts of zend-servicemanager for better performance. This includes configuration and setup, factory caching and service resolution.

mxc-servicemanager will be kept compatible to zend-servicemanager. Changes to master and develop branches of zend-servicemanager will get merged into mxc-servicemanager as appropriate and applicable.

To install mxc-servicemanager:

  1. Remove dependencies to zend-servicemanager from your project.

  2. Add a dependency to mxc-servicemanager to your composer.json

    "require": {
        "mxc-commons/mxc-servicemanager": "^1.1"
  3. Configure PSR-4 compliant autoloading of the namespace Zend\ServiceManager. If you use the recommended way of composer based autoloading, add this configuration to your composer.json

    "autoload": {
        "psr-4": {
            "Zend\\ServiceManager\\": "src/"
  4. Run composer update

Now you can use Zend\ServiceManager the way you are used to use it. zend-servicemanager is transparently replaced by mxc-servicemanager. mxc-servicemanager instances get created by new Zend\ServiceManager\ServiceManager as before.
