Zend Studio - VMware Workstation Integration

Virtualize Your PHP Development Processes with Zend Studio

Your development environment is likely to be quite different from that used in production. For example, you might be developing on Windows, whereas your application will be running on Linux in production. This discrepancy is the source of many issues that often delay application deployments.

With Zend Studio, you can enhance your development and testing processes by running and debugging your application in a virtual, production-like environment. Through an integration with VMware Workstation, you can set your development server to a local virtual machine that mirrors your production environment, and deploy your code directly onto that virtual server from the Zend Studio interface.

Furthermore, with everyone in your development organization testing their PHP code in identical virtual machines, you can ensure consistency across the development and testing teams, and speed up your development.

   My first impression of Studio 10 is good! Eclipse itself seems more stable, more responsive and less CPU hungry, and the content assist seems to have a better response time. And having mobile application development in the same IDE as the backend work is great!

   Zend Studio 10 is fully integrated with Git, PHPUnit and Zend Framework 2, which gives me one convenient place for my coding practices. When using ZF2, it's invaluable thanks to its seamless integration.

   I'm enjoying every minute I'm working using Zend Studio 10. Zend Studio 9 was really good, but version 10 is an almost telepathic assistant, sharp and quick -- I'm delighted. Keep up the good work on this brilliant piece of software.

   I am really excited about how easy it is to make a ZF2 project, create modules, and get template files that I can just edit instead of having to write from scratch.
