The definitive, comprehensive guide to Zend Studio for Eclipse

Zend Studio for Eclipse gives millions of PHP/LAMP developers world-class tools for building state-of-the-art web applications. Now, here’s a definitive guide to making the most of this breakthrough development environment. Zend Certified Engineer Peter MacIntyre and expert PHP developer Ian Morse show how to use Zend Studio for Eclipse to improve productivity, effectiveness, and code quality throughout your entire project lifecycle.

You’ll start with a product tour that introduces the core techniques and terminology you’ll use in all your projects–including views, perspectives, outlines, and much more. You’ll discover how to quickly use preferences to customize Zend Studio for Eclipse to your unique needs.

Next, MacIntyre and Morse offer detailed, practical insights into every key aspect of working with Zend Studio: the code editor, PHP perspective views, Code Gallery, Code Analyzer, refactoring, SQL integration, unit testing with PHPUnit, debugging, version control, WYSIWYG design, and much more. You’ll learn how to use the powerful integrated tools Zend provides, as well as those offered by the thriving worldwide Eclipse ecosystem.

This book is an indispensable resource for every developer who wants to master Zend Studio for Eclipse: programmers already familiar with PHP and LAMP and users of other Eclipse-based IDEs who want to leverage their skills to create powerful PHP-based web applications.
