Additional Information / FAQ

Why configs via XML?

It is much easier to document and validate available config options as xml with a xml schema definition (xsd) than a php array.

With the provided xsd files you will have an overview which options are available and how to configure them correctly. The framework encapsulates the translation of the xml to the ZF2 config array.

Is the module's manifest.xml required?

No. It is completely up to you if you'd like to use this feature or not.

What about performance when using XML configs

Since loading a php array is faster than processig xml and it'll benefit from bytecode caches, there is an option to pre-compile the xml definitions of your modules to a static array definition which is preferred when it exists.
