Code Gallery & Zend Platform Integration

Jurgen Langner

Code Gallery

 The last local development tool that we can look at is called the Code Gallery. This tool is not directly involved in team development processes, but it can certainly help with the creation of a repository of code libraries that your development team can use.

 Once a segment of code (a function or a class for example) has been written and tested it can be included into the local code gallery for team use and access.

 As well the code gallery can be expanded to a server level location for access from anyone who has the right credentials.

 The advantage here is that good tested code can be used across projects as well as across developers in the same project.

 Another great feature of the code gallery idea is that Zend has a code gallery of its own that you can access at any time and you can also submit your own code for possible inclusion into the global gallery.

 Figure 1 shows the code gallery creation screen and its controlling view in the background.

Zend Platform Integration

 Zend Studio for Eclipse also has some valuable integrations with other Zend products.

 The one to look at in the context of team development is Zend Platform. This is a Zend product that can be installed on a cluster of servers for either development or production purposes.

 This product sits on top of the web server (Apache) and monitors all the server’s activity that is generated.

 With this monitoring tool in place you can have it send emails to anyone when an error occurs.
