Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Our original Foundation PHP for Flash title was rightly regarded as a must-have when it came to wanting to learn just how to make your Flash sites make use of backend technologies, that was published way back in the days of Flash 5 and PHP 4, and things move pretty fast in the world of web design

This latest, completely rewritten, edition again brings together three of the web's hottest technologies?Flash, the server-side language PHP, and the MySQL database system. We?ve brought things back up to date, using ActionScript 2.0, PHP 5.0, and MySQL 4.1, the book has been designed to be version-neutral. In other words, you can be confident that you?re working with the latest standards, but that your applications won?t break if deployed on an older server. The book also provides a brief introduction to an alternative database system, SQLite, which is now automatically bundled with PHP 5 and requires no installation.

At each stage of the book you?ll be given an overview of a new area of PHP/MySQL, introducing you to the syntax while showing how it compares to ActionScript, and how it integrates with Flash to produce increasingly complicated applications. For example, earlier chapters cover things such as getting data from PHP to Flash and back again, variables, arrays, string manipulation, validating user input, and feedback forms. Later on, it moves on to more advanced subjects such as creating databases via the MySQL console and via phpMyAdmin, manipulating database data via a Flash interface, displaying data from an RSS feed in Flash, persisting data with sessions, and creating a full blown content management system.

In addition, to get you up and running, the book features a detailed guide to setting up your environment?PHP, MySQL, and the Apache web server?along with extensive troubleshooting information.

PHP is the language of choice on nearly 18 million domains, and MySQL has more than five million active users, including industry leaders like Google, the Associated Press, Sony, and NASA. They?re open-source and free; and with the help of this book, you?ll see that they?re easy and fun to learn.

Book News Annotation:

This resource for Web developers explains how to integrate Flash animation, the server-side language PHP, and the MySQL database system to build dynamic, data-rich applications. It is aimed at Flash users who have already mastered the basics. Although the book uses the latest standards, they have been kept version neutral wherever possible, so that applications are less likely to break when deployed on older servers. Powers is the author of several books on Web design.

Synopsis:

PHP is the language of choice on nearly 18 million domains, and MySQL has more than five million active users, including industry leaders like Google, the Associated Press, Sony, and NASA. They're open source and free; and with the help of this book, you'll see that they're easy and fun to learn.

Synopsis:

David Powers has been professionally involved with the electronic media for some 30 years, mostly in radio and television┬┐he was BBC Tokyo correspondent in the late 1980s and early 1990s┬┐but more recently with the Internet. He built his first site in 1995, and was instantly hooked. Eventually, the sheer tedium of updating content convinced him there must be a better way. After a brief flirtation with ASP, he experimented with PHP, and found himself hooked yet again.

A fluent Japanese speaker, Powers specializes in building Japanese-English bilingual websites, writing about Japan, and translating Japanese (he┬┐s translated several plays). He co-authored Foundation Dreamweaver MX 2004 (1590593081) and PHP Web Development with Dreamweaver MX 2004 (1590593502). Powers also worked as technical reviewer on a number of web-related titles for Apress.
