3.0 out of 5 stars DOA without doc, August 26, 2008
This review is from: Delphi for Php 2007 - Box/cd (CD-ROM)
I have written code in IDEs for decades. I am big on them. I disagree about the notion that it leads to 'generic looks'. I have been with Borland with Turbo Pascal to Object Pascal to what turned into Delphi. Delphi is a great product. Delphi for PHP has literally nothing to do with Delphi per se. It is a standalone product with a great IDE and an integrated debugger. All very cool, endless possibilities from what I can see. Mostly I can see this from the Youtube video folks have created and put out there. Because, as the other reviewer noted, there is no documentation to speak of. Yes, there is a reference for the class library but please - this is an IDE. The class library is available under GPL and if I wanted to code with it, I did not need this product.

A suspicious issue is that there is no aftermarket book, no 'website created with Delphi for PHP', not a single 'application' in the sample code but merely a collection of widgets. The question I have is: Is this product going to be around tomorrow and will the company provide a user guide and a real application?

I see enormous potential for this engine, there is full-blown Ajax support, controls you would pay a thousand dollars for if you bought them separately but useless. Once the documentation is there this product will take the market by storm. Otherwise it will remain DOA.
