CodeGear (from Borland) has officially announced the release of Delphi for PHP, a new rapid application development environment for a more visual approach to PHP development.
Many web developers today use PHP to develop portal frameworks, forums, and web applications because PHP allows them to create dynamic web applications with solid database connectivity. However, PHP web development has been stymied by the lack of a powerful RAD visual development environment. The existence of an active and vital open source PHP ecosystem with myriad of open source components and options makes the need for an integrated RAD development environment even more critical.
You can check out this new software and all of its features on the CodeGear website.
