Hey there, I'm Ignacio a guy that loves to do code and to eat pizza. Who likes to run, surf and live near the sea, I've been working at Genuitec for the last couple of years on Secure Delivery Center, that makes me also an Eclipse geek and p2 user.

Zend Studio
is a popular integration of Eclipse for PHP development. Although it has some specific Eclipse requirements, you can deliver it with Secure Delivery Center. In the following example, we use an Eclipse 4.4.2 Standard package and then mark it as RCP. Let’s get started!

Deliver Zend Studio in SDC

  1. Access the Get Packs wizard in the SDC Admin Console and install the Eclipse 4.4.2 software pack.

  2. Create a package and select the 4.4.2 Eclipse version.

  3. Import Zend Studio software to the Admin console from http://downloads.zend.com/studio-eclipse4/updates.

  4. Select the Zend Studio software and no other software from the Choose Exposed Software list.
    zend4

  5. Download the attached file and import a new third party library.

  6. Select the package created in step 2 and select Deliver a custom Eclipse RCP product on the Overview tab.  Your package is marked as RCP and the Admin Console adds the RCP Product tab on the Package view.
    zend6

  7. Click the Software tab and select the imported software Zend Studio and Zend Eclipse Theme Patch.
    zend7

  8. Click the RCP Product tab and then click Product Line-up.
  9. Click the Browse… link in the RCP Delivered via Eclipse Product Line-up area and select Zend Studio – com.zend.php.ide.
    zend9

  10. Click the Platforms tab and select the following platforms:
    • Linux 32-bit
    • Linux 64-bit
    • Mac OS X 64-bit Cocoa
    • Windows 32-bit
    • Windows 64-bit
    zend10

  11. Commit and Promote your package.

Now you are ready to install and start your package to deliver all the features of the Zend Studio PHP IDE to your team.  Next, you may want to start adding configurations for your workspace.  I recommend reading Adding Workspace Configurations in our Learning Center.  I hope this information was useful and would love to hear your thoughts @Genuitec_SDC on twitter or via the SDC forum.  Happy coding!
