Today Adobe and Zend entered into a collaboration to bring together the flexibility, productivity and enterprise reliability of PHP and Zend Platform with the user experience benefits of the open source Flex framework. This collaboration will deliver technologies, content and services to make it easy for enterprise developers to build web applications using Flex on the client and PHP on the server.
This is great news for many in the PHP community. I know some probably wanted another PHP framework as Adobe’s first choice, but they have to start somewhere. Hopefully Adobe will be able to work more formally with the other PHP frameworks, to offer a broader choice in solutions.
