phalanger jcx conflict

November 15, 2008 Leave a comment

What IDE do you use for your PHP web dev.? As a .NET developer, first choice is of course Visual Studio. Most PHP developers probably use Dreamweaver or for the hardcore code monkeys use notepad++? SSH directly onto dev server?

JCX Software is the best PHP IDE, if not the only one, IDE add-on for Visual Studio – also supported in VS2008. After I found about the Phalanger project and installed in from, I am no longer able to create a simple PHP project in VS2008 using PHP IDE supposedly due to conflicting between the two addon having the same file extensions. How do I fix this? uninstall on of them? email JCX to change their file extension? or the Phalanger dev. guys to choose a different phpproj extension?

The next Visual Studio is available now in Beta 2! Yey. Last July, Boon-Tiong Lim presented Visual Studio 2008 in its early release Beta 1 during the July QMSDNUG meeting. VS 2008 is improving technology developments such as Smart Client Application, MS Office application, Windows Vista application, and now handle data more productively, enable new web experience and improves application life cycle management. Check out the overview of Visual Studio 2008 white paper from here. So what’s new for us? .NET Framework 3.5, JavaScript Intellisense (very handy for AJAX developers), and LINQ (Language Integrated Query). Thanks to Marty, I got a few disc copies of Beta 2 but it can also be downloaded from msdn website.

The next MS campus activity @ QUT sometime next month will surely cover Visual Studio 2008 Beta 2 and possibly Sharepoint. The official Launch of Visual Studio wont come until February 27.
