Semantic Designs Announces a New Family of Tools for PHP Software
Date:5/17/2010

Semantic Designs has extended its line of software quality analysis and improvement tools to work with PHP, one of the most popular languages for web development. Semantic Designs offers tools for protecting intellectual property developed in PHP, measuring test coverage, code profiling, formatting per style guidelines, and semantic comparison of code fragments. Semantic Design's new PHP tools are available individually or as a product bundle.

PRWEB) May 17, 2010 -- Semantic Designs is pleased to announce general availability of a line of software tools for the PHP programming language. Semantic Designs tools have an extensive history being used on multi-million line business critical systems, typically developed using multiple programming languages. Most often these systems have been written in C/C++, COBOL/JCL, or Enterprise Java. The increased use of PHP for web applications has inspired Semantics Designs to offer a new line tools aimed at helping PHP systems architects, developers and code base maintainers. “Customers are telling us that they are building or have acquired large code bases in PHP, and they need to ensure the quality of these systems,” says Dr. Ira Baxter, Founder and CEO of Semantic Designs.

Semantic Designs' business is to use advanced compiler technology to help organizations understand, improve, or even migrate software to new languages or other technology platforms. Semantic Designs' software machinery was used to migrate an array of embedded systems on the B2 Bomber from a legacy language into maintainable and easily extensible C code. A major bank has used Semantic Designs technology to analyze and improve a 10+ million line IBM Enterprise COBOL system. The company’s off-the-shelf tools are used by all types or organizations for a variety of advanced software analysis and quality improvement tasks.

The PHP software world contains huge amounts of code developed by people with greatly varying levels of programming background, with the predictable result of highly uneven code quality. Much of the PHP software being deployed is customer-facing and quality problems tend to reflect directly on the website owner. Using Semantic Designs’ tools, an organization can assess and improve the quality of its PHP software or even, if desired, move from PHP to Java, C/C++ or other languages.

Semantic Designs initial product line for PHP includes:

Thicket™ Obfuscator for PHP - which scrambles PHP source code to make it very difficult to understand or reverse-engineer. This provides significant protection for source code intellectual property that must be hosted on a website or shipped to a customer, an especially acute problem for PHP. Semantic Designs’ Thicket™ tool does not require an additional run-time component like other obfuscation solutions. According to Tom Tomkins, owner of RedCart Solutions: “I purchased your PHP Thicket Obfuscator a couple weeks ago and wanted to let you know how things have been going. “My entire code base is now obfuscated and working and I love your product."

PHP Test Coverage and Profiler tools - enables the collection and display of code coverage data on PHP software source code bases of arbitrary size. This tool is available for both PHP4 and PHP5, can accumulate data over multiple test runs, and work with tens of thousands of scripts. The Tool inserts "probes" into the source for measurement that introduce extremely low size and performance overhead. PHP scripts are syntax checked and the tool produces a coverage report by file, class and method. The same report is available as XML to enable custom report generation.

Smart Differencer™ Tool - Developers frequently need to determine differences between various versions of text files comprising an application system's source code. Conventional differencing tools (e.g., diff) compute differences based on source lines of test, using line-based models of editing. These tools are very useful for for arbitrary text, but are are not cognizant of the structure of the programming language in which source code is written. Simple reformatting of changes in comments will result in lots of apparent changes without any actual semantic impact on the source code. The Semantic Designs Smart Differencer™ shows the differences between two versions of PHP source code in terms of abstract editing operations applied to programming language constructs.

PHP Source Code Formatter - The PHP Formatter tool reorganizes PHP source text files into neatly indented code blocks according to their nesting level, regardless of the original source formatting and line breaks. It is a member of Semantic Designs' well regarded family of Source Code Formatters.

Semantic Designs is a recognized leader in the development of automated software tools to address complex problems with large, critical software systems. Customers include Fortune 200 Enterprises, government agencies and prime government contractors. Semantic Designs tools deliver effective results for software migrations and modernizations and the company partners with leading integrators worldwide to meet enterprise customers' demanding requirements. Founded in 1996, Semantic Designs is a privately held corporation headquartered in Austin, Texas.
