Of course they do, but you don't need a third-party framework to be dynamic. Not even if you want to get technical and call everything, down to a blog backend or forum system a framework. I'm not trying to maliciously attack them here, just say that hey, if you know enough to code extensions on to a framework, why not just do it yourself in the first place? To which most people would reply that using a public framework all the code is tested and debugged and etc... though exploits pop up for them on a regular basis, the most prolific of these seems to be seagull, so I say, since you should have some knowledge of security anyways, framework or not, perhaps it's still yet better to build your own private framework as it will not be so publicly visible to would-be hackers and all those super intelligent 12 yr olds with moms computer.
I don't know. I'm all for open source, that's not what this is about (I was part of linux.com when it first launched, and if you knew my name and googled it, you'd find my crap posted all over linuxtoday.org and slashdot etc), I guess I'm just wondering if Lexus, BMW and Mercedes were all using Ford model frames, would they still be high end cars? To which I'm sure some will say, oh but Zend IS a Lexus frame. With a few honda parts, and an aftermarket gt cat-back exhaust system. Meh. I could argue both sides of this all by myself, all day. It was just a thought, and sorry again for pulling this away from the topic at hand.
Once again, sorry, no real input on that original topic, but thanks goes out simply for giving me something to study up on. To wit, singleton and other design patterns.
