Adobe, Zend introduce new Adobe Flash Builder 4.5 for PHP software

To create rich Internet applications for mobile, Web and desktop

By CBR Staff Writer

Adobe Systems and Zend Technologies, a PHP company, have introduced Adobe Flash Builder 4.5 for PHP software, a new integrated product that helps PHP developers to create rich Internet applications (RIAs) for mobile, Web and desktop.

The new offerings allow developers to have the benefit of an integrated development environment (IDE), combining the capabilities of Flash Builder and Zend Studio for creating Flex and PHP applications.

In addition, with a single code base developers can deliver applications for Android, BlackBerry Tablet OS and iOS while sharing code from Web applications, reducing the time and cost of application creation and maintenance.

The new offering also complements the release of Flash Builder 4.5, Flex 4.5 and the Adobe Creative Suite 5.5 family.

The new Adobe Flash Builder 4.5 for PHP is an Eclipse based tool for building expressive mobile, Web and desktop applications using PHP, ActionScript, and the open source Flex Framework.

The offering for PHP includes an integrated copy of Zend Studio 8, enabling developers to code and debug within a single environment, for the delivery of scalable, high-performance and secure PHP-based mobile applications on Android, BlackBerry Tablet OS and iOS.
