I'm writing some routes for a REST service. One of my resource's URI looks like this
I also want to give access to individual attributes of a user, which would look like this
But when I try to define that latter route, it doesn't work. Here's my ini where the routes are defined
routes.user.route = "resources/user/:id"
routes.user.defaults.controller = user
routes.user.defaults.action = get
routes.user.defaults.id = 0
routes.user.reqs.id = "\d+"
routes.user_attribute.route = "resources/user/:id/:attribute/"
routes.user_attribute.defaults.controller = user
routes.user_attribute.defaults.action = getAttribute
routes.user_attribute.defaults.id = 0
routes.user_attribute.defaults.attribute = ""
routes.user_attribute.reqs.id = "\d+"
routes.user_attribute.reqs.id = "reviews|lists"
When I try to access resources/user/4/reviews in my browser, I get the following output
An error occurred
Page not found
Message: Invalid controller specified (resources)
#0 /usr/local/lib/ZendFramework/ZendFramework-1.7.1-minimal/library/Zend/Controller/Front.php(934): Zend_Controller_Dispatcher_Standard->dispatch(Object(Zend_Controller_Request_Http), Object(Zend_Controller_Response_Http))
#1 /home/baileyp/public_html/web/index.php(50): Zend_Controller_Front->dispatch()
So, it's clearly not processing my 2nd route correctly, since it things the controller is "resources" and the action is "user". What am I doing wrong here? There's no examples on the Zend site that I've found that illustrate how to implement this.
And I don't want to use modules just to get this done - avoiding the creation of folders and such just to match a URI is the entire purpose of a routing system.
