At the moment it's not possible to just use a composer dependency to get a ZF2 package running within Flow (Zend Mail f.e. https://packagist.org/packages/zendframework/zend-mail ). Flow seems to do some "reflecting magic" that results in some nice errors.

Maybe you can copy the packages, create a Package.php and set "$objectManagementEnabled = FALSE" but this is really dirty. There should be a comfortable way to integrate ZF2 packages via composer and just use it like in the followingn example (maybe be disabling object management functions for some Packages in Settings.yaml:

$mail = new \Zend\Mail\Storage\Mbox(array('filename' => 'catcontent.mbox'));

The well known Settings.yaml-option "TYPO3:Flow:object:excludeClasses:" unfortunately does not work here.

PHP Fatal error: Class 'Zend\ServiceManager\AbstractPluginManager' not found in /Users/bernd/Sites/Testproject/Packages/Libraries/zendframework/zend-mail/Zend/Mail/Protocol/SmtpPluginManager.php on line 21

should do the trick. But you probably have to set it before installing the incompatible package – otherwise the exception will be thrown before the setting has an effect.

Hi Martin,

If you take a close look to the exception message:

PHP Fatal error: Class 'Zend\ServiceManager\AbstractPluginManager' not found in Packages/Libraries/zendframework/zend-mail/Zend/Mail/Protocol/SmtpPluginManager.php on line 21 [...]

The actual issue is not related to some "reflecting magic" of Flow, but to the ZF Mail package not correctly defining their dependency. In this case The "SmtpPluginManager" relies on the "ServiceManager" package to be installed.
So in order to fix this, you simply need to install that one, too.

After that you might get some reflection related exception. In my case:

Fatal error: Cannot use ArrayObject as ArrayObject because the name is already in use in Packages/Libraries/zendframework/zend-stdlib/Zend/Stdlib/ArrayStack.php

This can be fixed as described above in the Settings.yaml of the distribution or of the package that requires the ZF packages:


     # disable reflection for non psr-0 compliant 3rd party packages
       'zendframework.zendservicemanager' : ['.*']
       'zendframework.zendstdlib' : ['.*']

This works for me. To be sure, you can add the other ZF packages, too ('zendframework.zendloader', 'zendframework.zendmime' & 'zendframework.zendmail').
