The last two weeks were a-m-a-z-i-n-g! We released two major pieces that can turn Web development as easy and obvious as writing this hello world application. This time I would like to present additional important piece that the Zend team provide today to enable PHP and Web development (special thanks to @nataliabartol). Welcome the 'Eclipse-based package by Zend'. This package includes the Eclipse Platform latest release (version 3.7.1, code name Indigo-SR1), the Web Tools Source Editing plugin, the PDT plugin (latest version) and the Zend SDK plugin (this plugin enables Zend Developer Cloud). You can find the package and more information about this release here. The size of this package is ~90Mb (depending on your operating system) and users need to extract the package to run the product.
The following two minutes demo shows a simple create-deploy-debug cycle enabled by this package:
My team will definitely consider leveraging the Zend SDK to work with more solutions available in the market providing Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for PHP Developers such as Netbeans and phpStorm, stay tuned!
