Product Description

PHP is an open-source Web scripting language that’s gaining steam in the development community, especially in the Apache Web server realm. With a syntax that draws heavily on C, PHP appeals to advanced programmers who are moving to the Web from traditional software development. Web Application Development with PHP 4.0 isn’t your run-of-the-mill language tutorial. Authors Ratschiller and Gerken purposely designed its content to appeal to coders who already are proficient in PHP, but in need of advanced programming techniques and high-level application-development skills. Assuming a strong programming foundation, this book can be considered a next-level PHP tutorial. Drawing on their own experience of what’s really important in PHP development, the authors dive into topics such as linked lists and associative arrays. They also weave together topics like security and database access with such software-development issues as three-tier architecture, versioning, and program requirements. This balance makes for a nice fit for developers who have mastered the basics, but are looking to hone their skills to move to the next level. The book also goes into how to extend PHP by modifying its Zend language engine via the C source code. A companion CD includes PHP, MySQL, and Apache, as well as a number of utilities and the source code from the book. If already you’re deep into PHP and want to graduate to guru status, this book’s for you. –Stephen W. Plain Topics covered: Development planning, coding conventions, advanced PHP syntax, associative arrays, polymorphism and self-modifying code, application design, HTTP and sessions, PHP normal form, database access with PHP, PHP, and XML, and extending PHP Zend engine.

The authors present a set of interesting programming concepts, and the reader learns how to write good, reusable code. — Bjorn SchotteThe authors provide useful examples that include real code. They also explain the code because they want you to understand how it works. — Paul DuBois, Data Management, University of Wisconsin-Madison

    You may love or hate this book
    You may love or hate this book, since it’s not the usual collection of code recipes, it’s about application developing, methodologies and good coding practices.

    Not a PHP4 Book
    As another reviewer pointed out, this book was written when php4 was in beta. Despite it’s title, this book is NOT a PHP 4.0 book.

    Stick to the Subject Matter
    A good book overall for getting up and running with PHP. It is technical, so keep that in mind if you are adequate in HTML and want more.
