Configuring the Integration with Zend IDE

The following procedure describes how to configure the integration with Zend IDE. The integration enables users to extend Zend Guard with the rich editing features included in the Zend IDE. This provides users with a seamless workflow for fixing and modifying code through Zend Guard. This enables you to open files and fix errors in Zend IDE, seamlessly.


Before configuring the integration make sure you have both Zend Guard and Zend IDE installed on the same machine. It is also useful to already know the location of the Zend IDE's installation directory before setting-up the integration.


Settings have to be configured in both applications in order to successfully start the integration between Zend IDE and Zend Guard.
