View Full Version : Zend Studio & PHPdev, compatible?

10-23-2003, 05:52 AM
I want to try the Zend Studio (http://www.zend.com/) Demo, do any of you know if it's compatible with PHPdev? Is there anything I should know before install it? Is Zen Studio good and/or useful? Thank you!

Zend has its own inbuilt php parser but you can configure it to run with any existing php installation , phpdev included ..

is it any good ?


I would love to support Zend but if thats the best they can come up with ? ... one would have thought they could have found a C/C++ compiler somewhere knockng around and dumped JAVA and all the issues it brings.

+ the interface is far too crowded for me , unless you hide all the other windows & then whats the point ? ... Maguma Studio (google that) at least has detatchable windows to avoid the clutter.

If you want a debugger then its a useful tool (Maguma's debugger is very quirky in comparison) apart from that I give it 1 out of 10 , and that only cos I like all the other Zend products if not the pricing structure , its the (IMO) lemon in the basket.

are you firepages from http://www.firepages.com.au/ ? (just being curious) :o
I just want to test new things for php. The program is quite slow and after half-day I haven't undertood anything yet about it. My fault, I know; -give me some time. I'll keep on trying to get something useful from it, otherwise...
I'm going to get (demo of course) the Maguma Studio (http://www.maguma.com/en/index.html) to give it a try too, perhaps I like it :p
