Aldon today announced it is fully compatible with Zend Studio 7.0, via the just released Aldon Lifecycle Manager plug-in supporting both Eclipse 3.4 and 3.5. By using Aldon's change management solution in conjunction with the PHP-based IDE solution from Zend, development teams gain processes, predictability and visibility across Web-centric development projects-key benefits rarely associated with that area of development.
In the IBM i (System i, iSeries, AS/400) world, more and more companies are turning to PHP to modernize their applications by creating web-based interfaces to RPG programs and DB2 database files. Zend Studio provides powerful PHP editing and debugging capabilities, along with a myriad of building-block components that speed up time to production, while promoting best practices along the way. Aldon's process-driven change management provides the development flexibility, management, and control essential for successful business application development. It also helps manage all aspects of PHP development, including testing, deployment, implementation, and reporting.
The Aldon plug-in also works with the prior release of Zend Studio 6.1, which makes the Aldon plug-in unique in that it can be inserted into any existing tool that supports Eclipse 3.4 and below, allowing users to work on both IBM i code and PHP code from the same IDE. By adding the Aldon Lifecycle Manager plug-in to the same IDE, you get the seamless combination of PHP, RPG and enterprise change management from one single interface.
