Route Extension API

This document describes the Route extension API concepts, and provides usage examples. Zend Server Route plugins help Zend Server understand the specific routing system of your application. Using this application awareness, Zend Server can better aggregate monitoring events to prevent event propagation, and analyze the URLs displayed by the URL Insight feature.

Plugin Structure

A Route plugin is comprised of a 'route.php' file which contains all the plugin logic.


This class is an internal Zend class which enables the connection between the plugin and Zend Server.

class MyAppPlugin extends ZAppsPlugin {


This function enables you to track one of your application functions. It provides you with the ability to set two callback functions that will be called whenever the application function is executed. The first callback will be called when the function is entered, and the second will be called when the function exits.

$myAppPlugin>setWatchedFunction(MyRouteClass::resolveRoute, array($myAppPlugin, ‘resolveRouteEnter’), array($myAppPlugin, ‘resolveRouteLeave’);

You can also have access to the function parameters using $context[‘functionArgs’].


    class SymfonyPlugin extends ZAppsPlugin {

        public function resolveMVCEnter($context) {


        public function resolveMVCLeave($context) {

            if (!$this->resolved) {
                $request = $context['functionArgs'][0];

                $ctrl = $request->get('_controller');
                if (empty($ctrl)) {
                $ctrl = explode(':', $ctrl);
                $controller = $ctrl[0];
                if (!empty($ctrl[2])) {
                        $action = $ctrl[2];
                } else {
                        $action = $ctrl[1];
                $this->setRequestMVC(array($controller, $action));
                $this->resolved = true;

        private $resolved = false;      

    $symfonyPlugin = new SymfonyPlugin();
    $symfonyPlugin->setWatchedFunction("Symfony\Component\HttpKernel\HttpKernel::handle", array($symfonyPlugin, "resolveMVCEnter"), array($symfonyPlugin, "resolveMVCLeave"));


This method is defined by 'ZAppsPlugin' and is used to define the current request route in Zend Server.


Full Example

The following example defines the routing for Magento requests:


    class MagentoPlugin extends ZAppsPlugin {

        public function resolveRouteEnter($context) {


        public function resolveRouteLeave($context) {
            if (!$this->resolved) {
                $this->resolved = true; 
                $route = array(                 
                    "module" => Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getRequest()->getModuleName(),
                    "controller" => Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getRequest()->getControllerName(),
                    "action" => Mage::app()->getFrontController()->getRequest()->getActionName()


        private $resolved = false;

    $magentoPlugin = new MagentoPlugin();
        array($magentoPlugin, "resolveRouteEnter"), 
        array($magentoPlugin, "resolveRouteLeave"));
