Great Visual IDE for PHP

CALIFORNIA, USA: CodeGear, provider of developer tools, has announced Delphi for PHP 2.0. Delphi for PHP is the only PHP Integrated Development Environment (IDE) for building interactive web applications using visual drag-and-drop design capabilities and a powerful PHP component framework.

The new 2.0 version focuses on making PHP web development in several key areas:

HTML templates with embedded dynamic PHP, enabling PHP developers to work visually in their Web 2.0 development and to collaborate easily with HTML designers

Comprehensive and seamless database support for MySQL™, CodeGear InterBase®, Microsoft® SQL Server®, Oracle®, PostgreSQL, Informix®, Sybase®, SQL Anywhere® and IBM® DB2™, plus the ability to build rich data-driven web applications without requiring database connectivity coding

An expanded and faster Visual Component Library (VCL) for PHP with support for popular PHP packages and libraries including Zend Framework

Productivity and performance enhancements throughout including new error insight, source code formatting, expanded code insights and code folding

Powerful new PHP debugging features and new integrated PHP performance profiling and tuning for achieving maximum applications performance

"CodeGear revolutionized web development with the release of Delphi for PHP. It gave us countless innovations including speed, increased productivity and ease of maintenance," said Ricardo Mendes, CEO of RBM Web, based in Brazil. "Because we develop high-performance financial applications, we must be able to implement new routines very quickly. This capability, along with the new HTML template system, easy access to the Oracle database, integrated help functionality and language translation in Delphi for PHP 2.0 are all very important to our business."

Said Michael Swindell, CodeGear Vice President of Products, "With the initial introduction of Delphi for PHP, we brought together PHP and rapid application development for the first time. With version 2.0, we are raising the bar in every area with faster performance across the board and a wide array of new productivity, debugging, and performance tuning features and much broader 'out-of-the-box' support for databases and popular PHP packages and libraries. But perhaps the most significant advance is the new HTML template system which enables PHP developers to seamlessly build rich PHP applications against HTML templates for design flexibility and easy customization with popular HTML tools."

Powerful Database Development Capabilities and Ease of Use Benefit PHP Developers

Any developer can take advantage of Delphi for PHP 2.0 to build PHP applications visually in just minutes. Database developers, for example, who want to create intranet and Web applications can natively connect them to their database and use drag-and-drop components to connect, display and edit data. For Microsoft Visual Studio® ASP.NET™ developers as well as CodeGear Delphi and C++Builder® developers, the product offers a familiar visual and component-based approach to Web 2.0 PHP development that reduces the learning curve and increases overall development productivity and reuse. For experienced PHP developers, Delphi for PHP 2.0 offers an easy way to componentize any PHP code to make it easier to use and reuse as well as expanded capabilities, flexibility, and visual development only previously available in popular tools for Windows and .NET.

"Zend Framework has evolved very quickly to become the leading application framework for PHP. We are excited to see CodeGear add support for Zend Framework to its Delphi for PHP 2.0 product," said Mark de Visser, Chief Marketing Officer for Zend Technologies. "The Delphi ecosystem is known for its scale and its skilled developers. PHP and Zend Framework will benefit greatly from the innovation this will bring to our communities."
