IBM and Zend on Tuesday made good on their promise made this past February to jointly deliver Zend Core for IBM, an integrated solution to developers deploy data base applications and services using the Web-based PHP language.
In a related development the two companies also announced they are jointly working to enhance PHP by including better high-level database integration frameworks and enhanced PHP-based Web services standards. In a third announcement Zend separately announced its Zend Network, a service and support system that offers enterprise-class updates and support for PHP developers.
Zend Core for IBM weaves IBM's DB2 Universal Database and Cloudscape, which is based on the Apache Software Foundation's Derby project, with Zend's open source PHP environment. By combining the two officials from both companies believe they can offer an out-of-the-box PHP development environment that makes it easier to create exploitive applications.
Zend Core for IBM is built on PHP 5 technology and has native support for XML and Web services, which IBM and Zend both contend are becoming more mainstream as corporate users gravitate increasingly to Service Oriented Architectures.
