Zend Studio 10.6 - PHP IDE for Smarter Development

What's New in Zend Studio 10

Cloud Connected Mobile Apps and ZF2 Support

Zend Studio 10 adds exciting new capabilities including:

Of course, these improvements and new capabilities all build upon the award-winning features of introduced in previous Zend Studio releases.

End-to-end mobile app development

Zend Studio simplifies creation of mobile applications with server back-ends so that even developers with no prior experience can quickly become successful. A WYSIWYG editor enables fast creation of portable mobile apps, while a visual service editor greatly simplifies the creation of RPC or RESTful data back-ends.

Testing mobile apps is much easier with a new integrated web services debugger, and a deployment process that allows testing via Web Mobile emulator or directly to real devices.

Once apps are built, Zend Studio 10 enables a simple workflow to create iOS, Android and Windows Phone mobile applications that can be published on their respective application stores, for maximum user reach and easy consumption.

Zend Framework 2 support

  • Developers can immediately start writing the business logic of their applications by creating a Zend Framework 2 module in a single click. Each new module is automatically registered and complete, saving programmers from needing to manually change files.
  • All Zend Framework modules are re-usable. As a result, developers already have the plumbing in place to create new components or use them in someone else’s ZF application.
  • Zend Framework 2 is one of the best, most popular and well-known implementations of the popular model-view-controller (MVC) architecture. Zend Studio 10 enables developers to easily create views, view helpers and controllers; combined with Zend Framework 2, developers can make MVC happen quickly and easily.
  • Content assist in Zend Framework project enhances the experience of switching between many different controllers, view helpers and views (controller variables and view helper methods are visible inside view), supports services shared via Service Locator and makes working with configuration files easier. MVC Outline view helps to keep track of modules, controllers and views.

Use the latest PHP release and benefit from Eclipse platform ecosystem

Staying up to date with the latest technologies is important. Zend Studio 10 supports development using PHP 5.4.11 and 5.3.21, giving developers the power of its new capabilities and syntax, such as traits. And it uses Eclipse as its base platform, leveraging its popular code editing capabilities and its ecosystem of plug-ins. You'll benefit from the many JavaScript, CSS3, and HTML5 editor improvements in Eclipse; try some Extra Features available for easy installation from Studio’s Welcome page!

   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.
