    Question Zend Studio & PHPdev, compatible?

    I want to try the Zend Studio 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.
    resistance is...

    MVC is the current buzz in web application architectures. It comes from event-driven desktop application design and doesn't fit into web application design very well. But luckily nobody really knows what MVC means, so we can call our presentation layer separation mechanism MVC and move on. (Rasmus Lerdorf)

    are you firepages from http://www.firepages.com.au/ ? (just being curious)
    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 to give it a try too, perhaps I like it
