Zend, the PHP company, and JetBrains, creators of productivity-enhancing software development tools, today announced the Integration of PhpStorm with Zend Server Z-Ray. Z-Ray, the innovative developer productivity booster, provides PhpStorm developers in-context visibility that enables them to deliver higher quality code faster. Z-Ray also integrates with PhpStorm to enable easy debugging with Zend Server.

"We are very excited to add new capabilities to PhpStorm that bring productivity gains for our users," said Alexey Gopachenko, JetBrains PhpStorm Product Manager. "The integration with Zend Server, and specifically Z-Ray, provides an unprecedented level of visibility that allows developers to see how their code is running as they develop it. This 'X-Ray' insight puts the developer in control, translating to higher quality code produced faster. The Zend Server Z-Ray and PhpStorm combination is a true win-win throughout the development cycle for both developers and managers, especially for enterprise-oriented projects."

"Quality software delivered quickly across many types of devices is a prerequisite for innovation," said Guy Harpaz, Senior Director of Product Management, Zend. "At the heart of quality software is quality code. Zend Server Z-Ray's integration with PhpStorm empowers both PhpStorm and Zend Server users to address code-related errors early, making application development more efficient across the board. Both businesses and consumers will reap the rewards of this elevated 'quality control.'"

The Z-Ray feature of Zend Server provides a "left shift" to development, providing high quality code as input to the software delivery process.  This enables developers to understand the impact of their code changes earlier rather than later, allowing them to address issues long before code reaches production. By doing so, development organizations set themselves on the path to Continuous Delivery of their applications, a process aided by other Zend Server capabilities including deployment automation and automated infrastructure scalability.
