Mastering Joomla 15 Extension And Framework Development

Joomla! is one of the world's top open source content management systems. The main sources of the PHP MySQL application's success are its comprehensive extension libraries, which extend Joomla! far beyond content management, and it's very active forums where one can easily tap into the knowledge of other Joomla! users, administrators, and developers.

One of the most pleasurable things about working with Joomla! is the encouragement of openness and friendliness among the members of the Joomla! community. It is, without a doubt, the community that is driving the Joomla! project.

The name 'Joomla!' is derived from the Swahili word 'Jumla', meaning 'all together'. The Joomla! community lends a true sense of jumla to the project. The architecture of the latest version of Joomla! differs in many ways from previous versions. Resultantly backward-compatibility with some extensions has been broken; the race is on for developers to update their skills in order to rectify the problems and start building new extensions. Perhaps the most important of the changes is the reorganization and classification of files and classes. This change encourages but does not force developers to use the Joomla! libraries consistently between extensions.
