In this book, we will discuss the consumption, development and deployment, description, discovery and security of Web Services in conjunction with the PHP programming model for Web services. This book discusses what Web Services are, how are they important in enterprise computing today and the various standards and programming models to building Web Services using PHP.
This book assumes that the reader has read Beginning PHP 4 and he does not have much of a clue about databases (almost Zero Database Quotient). So this book should be able to teach the reader how to build robust database driven PHP web applications. Further, this book is kind of a 'getting-the reader-ready' for PHP5 which will have strong OO and PEAR DB focus. So we teach the Beginning PHP DB developer the best practices to be adopted when getting into active development. After reading the book, developers will be fluent in database systems and how to take advantage of them in PHP applications.
Professional PHP4 will show you exactly how to create state of the art web applications that scale well, utilize databases optimally, and connect to a back-end network using a multi-tiered approach. This book also aims at teaching PHP by coding FTP clients, e-mail clients, some advanced data structures, session management, and secure programming. Topics covered: The whys and wherefores of PHP4; PHP installation on *nix, Windows, and MacOS X; Sessions and cookies, coding FTP clients, network-related function calls, and directory services; PHP support for LDAP; Multi-tiered development using PHP; PHP's interaction with XML; PHP with MySQL; PHP with PostgreSQL and ODBC; Securing, optimizing, and internationalizing PHP applications; PHP extension libraries; A real world employee directory, an online library application, and a GTK interface to the application; Case studies on a user privilege system and a multi-tiered WML-based shopping cart.
The true power of PHP lies in its strength to create dynamic web content. Developers have moved on from using the newbie style of PHP books, to making PHP work for them by using the theoretical offerings to create small to medium websites. This transition has created a definite information void, and through the Professional PHP4 Web Development Solutions book we hope to exactly fill that space - by helping you create a variety of real world, interactive web sites using PHP4 along with HTML, a DBMS system (MySQL), PEAR::DB, and XML or WML wherever applicable.
This book is a tutorial, a resource and a reference for PHP programmers who need to process XML data or interface different systems using XML. Non PHP programmers who need to construct a web based frontend for an application using XML can learn how to do it using PHP, since the book also covers the basic foundations of PHP programming. Advanced PHP programmers experienced in XML will obtain a reference as well as a very deep coverage on advanced topics.
Consisting of 24 one-hour lessons, Sams Teach Yourself PHP4 in 24 Hours is divided into five sections that guide you through the language from the basics to the advanced functions. The first section of the book teaches the fundamentals of PHP.
