Hi all. I am a beginner in Zend and I am wondering if there is any good book or tutorial for developing applications with Zend Framework, using json for data encoding and decoding and how to use jquery with Zend. Thanks.

When looking for a book, make sure you buy one for the correct version of the framework. Zend 1.8 is rather old.

The framework is on version 2.0.5, and was heavily rewritten for the release of version 2 to include the new PHP 5.3 features. Version 2 is therefore not backwards compatible with any previous versions.
