NetBeans IDE for PHP 7.1

NetBeans IDE for PHP 7.1

Today, January 5th, 2012 netbeans.org team announced, that NetBeans IDE 7.1 released. Congratulations!
I use NetBeans as my main integrated development environment to work with PHP. So, I downloaded it just got the notification email from netbeans.org. What is first impression? First impression is right the most of the time. On my Ubuntu 10.04 LTS installation was smooth and fast. After 1st start NetBeans as usual asked permission to import settings from the previous installation. Finally, it started and worked as it should. The main part – debugging with FireFox browser still works. So I can continue my Web development work under this version.
Small negative – I don’t know where the reason, but I caught the situation, when NetBeans editor window lost cursor focus.

NetBeans 7.0 for PHP Waiting for Connection to XDebug

NetBeans IDE 7.0 for PHP and XDebug

NetBeans IDE 7.0 for PHP and XDebug


Recently I met with one annoying thing during work on the small PHP programming task. My favorite IDE for PHP development NetBeans failed to connect to the PHP debug library xDebug. It just shows “NetBeans XDebug waiting for connection message’ in the status line for long time. See the example on the image below. What is going wrong? I tried to recall what I did recently with my box and what could be the reason of such a pity that I could not use more built-in NetBeans PHP debugger.
Yes, I installed system updates including (FireFox libraries) for my Ubuntu. Little earlier I moved to NetBeans for PHP 7.0. May be something wrong is in my setup? I raise accesible manuals, digged the Net, triple times re-checked depended settings. All of them were in the right state, but Ubuntu-Apache-PHP-NetBeans bundle still not allowed me to debug PHP scripts in the habitual, effective and convenient way. For any case I restarted Apache 1st, then reboot the whole system. Nothing helped.

NetBeans IDE 7.0 Release Candidate 2 for PHP

Netbeans IDE 70 RC2 for PHP

Netbeans IDE 70 RC2 for PHP

08 Apr 2011 NetBeans.org announced that NetBeans IDE 7.0 Release Candidate 2 is available for download. The last testing before the final release (it is planned for April) started. We talked about NetBeans IDE 7.0 here an ShinePHP.com already (check NetBeans posts list). I should make a little correction. I supposed in previous posts that Java 7 is required to install NetBeans IDE 7.0 for PHP. I was wrong. Java SE Development Kit (JDK) 6 Update 24 or later is required for that actually. To be more exact, the PHP NetBeans bundle requires the Java Runtime Environment (JRE) 6 only to be installed and run.
NetBeans IDE 7.0 for PHP installation process for Linux users was described in details here already. It is straightforward and quite simple.
Let’s repeat in short, just to show a process screenshots for the new Release Candidate 2 version:
