Zend Collaborations With Top Notch I.T Company In Development

Hoping to spur its open source development strategies, IBM has announced a deal with Zend Technologies to create what it believes is among the first integrated programming solutions using the Web-based PHP (PHP Hypertext Preprocessor) language.

IBM officials also committed to delivering at least 30 existing software projects to open source developers.

The Zend agreement calls for the integration of two open source technologies: IBM’s Cloudscape database and Zend’s PHP environment. The combined technologies will create Zend Core for IBM, to serve as an “out-of-the-box” PHP development and production environment allowing corporate users to more easily develop, deploy, and manage open source applications.

Both companies also announced they will jointly work to include database integration frameworks and improved PHP Web services standards.

IBM officials said they hope their endorsement of PHP will drum up more support among developers for Cloudscape.

“Rants about PHP are everywhere, and they even come from smart guys. Speaking on the pros and cons of PHP, SynapseIndia CEO Shamit Khemka mentioned few points which really define the importance of the language.”

“The two products are the PHP Enabler, which is intended to let PHP programs and cases, SynapseIndia developed the PHP programs to run smoothly on Sun’s Web server, and the Zend Performance Suite, which uses code acceleration, content caching and other software tricks to improve the performance of PHP on the Sun platform, the companies said.”

Shamit Khemka also mentions that the SDK (software development kit) is based on the CloudFusion toolkit and includes a library of APIs (application programming interfaces), code samples and documentation. It should simplify development by providing a more “tailored development experience”, and will help developers get started much faster, according to Amazon. Previously, developers had to download several libraries from different providers in order to build an application on multiple AWS products, the company said.The AWS SDK for PHP can be downloaded from Amazon’s website. PHP is probably not the best designed language in the world.
