I’d like to address questions about DB2 support in Zend Framework 2.x. Because I helped create the IBM i-friendly DB2 adapter for Zend Framework 1.x, I’ve followed the development of a similar adapter for ZF2.
(updated January 30, 2013, upon the release of ZF 2.1)
Q. Does ZF 2 include an adapter for DB2?
A. Yes! Starting with ZF 2.1, which was released today.
Q. Is Alan’s IBM i-friendly DB2 adapter for Zend Framework 1.x needed in 2.x?
A. No. Because ZF’s Zend_Db equivalent in 2.x works differently than in 1.x, my 1.x component is not needed in 2.x.
Q. Does ZF 2.1′s DB2 adapter work with IBM i?
A. Yes! Please try it and provide feedback to the ZF team.

I am putting together a form of research initiative that aims to quantify *why* a non-IBMi tech person should consider or pursue IBMi. I believe one of the best sources of this information can come from the community, so I’ve setup a GoogleDoc that can be edited by anybody (no Google signup required).
If you are interested in contributing then please head over to this link:http://bit.ly/OyCd3M
The results of this will be placed onto IBM’s IBMi wiki page for all to see and act as a place we can point people.
Here’s a tweet phrase if you are looking to share socially:
Why #IBMi? If you had to convince a #Ruby #PHP #Java dev to run their app on #IBMi what would you say? Comment here: bit.ly/OyCd3M
