What's New in Flash Builder 4.5 for PHP
Adobe Flash Builder 4.5 for PHP introduces several exciting new capabilities for professional Flex and PHP developers, streamlining the process of building powerful web and mobile applications with rich user interfaces.
Create joint Flex and PHP applications in a single workflow
You can easily create new Flex and PHP Projects as well as Flex Mobile and PHP Projects. Doing so creates the PHP project and its resources, creates the Flex project and its resources, and associates the two for ease of interaction. It's also possible to associate additional Flex projects with the same PHP code, and to change associations after creation.
Easily leverage back-end services in FlexCode generation wizards allow you to create a strongly typed Flex data service simply by right-clicking the appropriate PHP code, thanks to Zend Studio's PHP code introspection capabilities.
Seamless debugging through client-side Flex and server-side PHP codeSet code breakpoints in both ActionScript and PHP code, and step through the entire application flow from the client device to the back-end server. A debugging session can be started on an actual handheld device, activating first the Flex breakpoint and then (after the Flex code sends a request to the server), the PHP breakpoint.
Single-codebase support for multiple mobile devices/platformsThe IDE allows a single-codebase, connected mobile Flex project to be packaged to run natively on multiple platforms and devices. Android support is available now, while iOS and Blackberry Tablet OS support is forthcoming with release 4.5.1.
Zend Server/Zend Server Community Edition integrationEasily configure the PHP runtime and the Flash Builder 4.5 for PHP debugging capabilities by using Zend Server as the PHP stack. You'll also be able to import Zend Server-generated code traces, leverage performance and job queueing APIs, and more.
