The default and recommended way to write Zend Framework applications uses a set of services defined in the Zend\Mvc\Service namespace. This chapter details what each of those services are, the classes they represent, and the configuration options available.
This is the one service class referenced directly in the bootstrapping. It provides the following:
Application, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ApplicationFactory.
Config, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ConfigFactory. Internally, this pulls the ModuleManager service, and calls its loadModules() method, and retrieves the merged configuration from the module event. As such, this service contains the entire, merged application configuration.
ControllerLoader, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ControllerLoaderFactory. This scoped container will be populated by the ``ServiceListener`.`
Additionally, the scoped container is configured to use the Di service as an abstract service factory – effectively allowing you to fall back to DI in order to retrieve your controllers. If you want to use Zend\Di to retrieve your controllers, you must white-list them in your DI configuration under the allowed_controllers key (otherwise, they will just be ignored).
Finally, if the loaded controller is Pluggable, an initializer will inject it with the ControllerPluginManager service.
ControllerPluginManager, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ControllerPluginManagerFactory. This instantiates the Zend\Mvc\Controller\PluginManager instance, passing it the service manager instance. It also uses the Di service as an abstract service factory – effectively allowing you to fall back to DI in order to retrieve your controller plugins.
DependencyInjector, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\DiFactory. This pulls the Config service, and looks for a “di” key; if found, that value is used to configure a new Zend\Di\Di instance. Additionally, the Di instance is used to seed a Zend\ServiceManager\Di\DiAbstractServiceFactory instance which is then attached to the service manager as an abstract factory – effectively enabling DI as a fallback for providing services.
EventManager, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\EventManagerFactory. This factory composes a static reference to a SharedEventManager, which is injected in a new EventManager instance. This service is not shared by default, allowing the ability to have an EventManager per service, with a shared SharedEventManager injected in each.
ModuleManager, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ModuleManagerFactory.
This is perhaps the most complex factory in the MVC stack. It expects that an ApplicationConfig service has been injected, with keys for module_listener_options and modules; see the quick start for samples.
It instantiates an instance of Zend\ModuleManager\Listener\DefaultListenerAggregate, using the “module_listener_options” retrieved. Checks if a service with the name ServiceListener exists, otherwise falls back to the ServiceListenerFactory, and instantiates it. A bunch of service listerns will be added to the ServiceListener, like listeners for the getServiceConfig, getControllerConfig, getControllerPluginConfig, getViewHelperConfig module methods.
Next, it retrieves the EventManager service, and attaches the above listeners.
It instantiates a Zend\ModuleManager\ModuleEvent instance, setting the “ServiceManager” parameter to the service manager object.
Finally, it instantiates a Zend\ModuleManager\ModuleManager instance, and injects the EventManager and ModuleEvent.
ServiceListenerFactory, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ServiceListenerFactory. The fatory is used to instantiate the ServiceListener, while allowing easy extending. It checks if a service with the name ServiceListenerInterface exists, which must implement Zend\ModuleManager\Listener\ServiceListenerInterface, before instantiating the default ServiceListener.
In addition to this, it retrieves the ApplicationConfig and looks for the service_listener_options key. This allows you to register own listerns for module methods and configuration keys to create an own service manager; see the application configuration options for samples.
Router, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\RouterFactory. This grabs the Config service, and pulls from the router key, passing it to Zend\Mvc\Router\Http\TreeRouteStack::factory in order to get a configured router instance.
ViewFeedRenderer, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ViewFeedRendererFactory, which simply returns a Zend\View\Renderer\FeedRenderer instance.
ViewFeedStrategy, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ViewFeedStrategyFactory. This instantiates a Zend\View\Strategy\FeedStrategy instance with the ViewFeedRenderer service.
ViewJsonRenderer, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ViewJsonRendererFactory, which simply returns a Zend\View\Renderer\JsonRenderer instance.
ViewJsonStrategy, mapping to Zend\Mvc\Service\ViewJsonStrategyFactory. This instantiates a Zend\View\Strategy\JsonStrategy instance with the ViewJsonRenderer service.
Additionally, two initializers are registered. Initializers are run on created instances, and may be used to further configure them. The two initializers the ServiceManagerConfig class creates and registers do the following:
Finally, the ServiceManager registers itself as the ServiceManager service, and aliases itself to the class names Zend\ServiceManager\ServiceManagerInterface and Zend\ServiceManager\ServiceManager.
The View layer within Zend\Mvc consists of a large number of collaborators and event listeners. As such, Zend\Mvc\View\ViewManager was created to handle creation of the various objects, as well as wiring them together and establishing event listeners.
The ViewManager itself is an event listener on the bootstrap event. It retrieves the ServiceManager from the Application object, as well as its composed EventManager.
Configuration for all members of the ViewManager fall under the view_manager configuration key, and expect values as noted below. The following services are created and managed by the ViewManager:
ViewHelperLoader, representing and aliased to Zend\View\HelperLoader. If a helper_map subkey is provided, its value will be used as a map to seed the helper loader.
ViewHelperBroker, representing and aliased to Zend\View\HelperBroker. It is seeded with the ViewHelperLoader service, as well as the ServiceManager itself.
The Router service is retrieved, and injected into the Url helper.
If the base_path key is present, it is used to inject the BasePath view helper; otherwise, the Request service is retrieved, and the value of its getBasePath() method is used.
If the doctype key is present, it will be used to set the value of the Doctype view helper.
ViewTemplateMapResolver, representing and aliased to Zend\View\Resolver\TemplateMapResolver. If a template_map key is present, it will be used to seed the template map.
ViewTemplatePathStack, representing and aliased to Zend\View\Resolver\TemplatePathStack. If a template_path_stack key is prsent, it will be used to seed the stack.
ViewResolver, representing and aliased to Zend\View\Resolver\AggregateResolver and Zend\View\Resolver\ResolverInterface. It is seeded with the ViewTemplateMapResolver and ViewTemplatePathStack services as resolvers.
ViewRenderer, representing and aliased to Zend\View\Renderer\PhpRenderer and Zend\View\Renderer\RendererInterface. It is seeded with the ViewResolver and ViewHelperBroker services. Additionally, the ViewModel helper gets seeded with the ViewModel as its root (layout) model.
ViewPhpRendererStrategy, representing and aliased to Zend\View\Strategy\PhpRendererStrategy. It gets seeded with the ViewRenderer service.
View, representing and aliased to Zend\View\View. It gets seeded with the EventManager service, and attaches the ViewPhpRendererStrategy as an aggregate listener.
DefaultRenderingStrategy, representing and aliased to Zend\Mvc\View\DefaultRenderingStrategy. If the layout key is prsent, it is used to seed the strategy’s layout template. It is seeded with the View service.
ExceptionStrategy, representing and aliased to Zend\Mvc\View\ExceptionStrategy. If the display_exceptions or exception_template keys are present, they are used to configure the strategy.
RouteNotFoundStrategy, representing and aliased to Zend\Mvc\View\RouteNotFoundStrategy and 404Stategy. If the display_not_found_reason or not_found_template keys are present, they are used to configure the strategy.
ViewModel. In this case, no service is registered; the ViewModel is simply retrieved from the MvcEvent and injected with the layout template name. template
The ViewManager also creates several other listeners, but does not expose them as services; these include Zend\Mvc\View\CreateViewModelListener, Zend\Mvc\View\InjectTemplateListener, and Zend\Mvc\View\InjectViewModelListener. These, along with RouteNotFoundStrategy, ExceptionStrategy, and DefaultRenderingStrategy are attached as listeners either to the application EventManager instance or the SharedEventManager instance.
Finally, if you have a strategies key in your configuration, the ViewManager will loop over these and attach them in order to the View service as listeners, at a priority of 100 (allowing them to execute before the DefaultRenderingStrategy).
The following options may be used to provide initial configuration for the ServiceManager, ModuleManager, and Application instances, allowing them to then find and aggregate the configuration used for the Config service, which is intended for configuring all other objects in the system.

The following options are available when using the default services configured by the ServiceManagerConfig and ViewManager.
