Zend PHP and Adobe Flex

Posted by Sravan | September 18, 2008 .

Now it will be possible to build rich internet applications using Flex on the userend and PHP in the backend. Zend Technologies Inc., the PHP company, in a recent press release announced its collaboration with Adobe Systems Inc. “to accelerate rich web application development using PHP and Open Source Flex Framework.”

While the nearest goal is to integrate Action Message Format (AMF) support into the Zend Framework, a larger goal is to integrate the two respective IDEs Zend Studio and Adobe Flex Builder, both of which have been built on Eclipse.

This is an opportunity for developers from one side to cross over to the other. Those already with that thought in their minds can check out the two resources offered by Zend and Adobe respectively.

This development can also greatly increase the weight for the choice of Flex by larger enterprises which might thus far have preferred the reliability of PHP to the rich user experience of Flex.

Zend is a leading provider of products and services for developing, deploying, and managing business-critical PHP applications. Zend Framework is an open source PHP application framework best known for its support for flexible, efficient creation of web applications. Deployed at more than 25,000 companies worldwide, the Zend family of products is a comprehensive platform for supporting the entire lifecycle of PHP applications.

    X2O is a Zend_AMF competitor that is worth taking a look.

    It’s a web-based data-modeling platform for Flex/Flash CS4 apps that creates a remote database, CMS, and a SWC file. The SWC contains value objects that can work directly with the database without having to configure anything on the client:

    An interesting comparision between Zend_AMF and the X2O framework:
