The IBM i Programmer's Guide to PHP

The IBM i Programmer's Guide to PHP Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

This is the first book to comprehensively address PHP and how it can—and should—be deployed on the IBM i. With this IBM i-specific point of view, the authors examine how to transfer skills from a green screen environment to the Web, become intimately familiar with PHPs commonly used features, and help start down the road of highly interactive Web-based application development.

For decades, the green screen has been the ubiquitous interface into an organizations data. But with the advent of HTML, the Internet, and the browser, combined with the end users existing familiarity with the Web, green-screen developers are seeing much of the demand for their skills diminish in favor of more Web-enabled technologies. One of those technologies is the PHP programming language.

A flexible, forgiving programming style makes PHP easier to learn, and is just one of the many reasons PHP tops the list when developers seek to improve their Web-related skills. While not limited to Web development, PHP is designed from the ground up to be the ideal environment to easily build simple or complex Web-based applications in the most effective manner possible, while still giving programmers the control they need.

With this book you will learn to:

> Build basic PHP applications and how to structure them

> Access local and remote resources, as well as external data sources

> Manage persistence between requests and the life of an individual  request from browser to server to browser

> Tap System i DB2 database tables from PHP

> Install and access MySQL databases on the System i

Synopsis:

The PHP programming language is thoroughly examined in this guide for programmers looking to transfer their skills from the interface of a green-screen environment to using web-enabled technologies. As developers are experiencing more demand for such technologies, PHP programming language has become the language of choice for many developers who are required to obtain more web-friendly skills. Commonly used features are discussed and look beyond the PHP language itself to help programmers begin building highly interactive web-based applications. PHP's flexible and forgiving programming style was designed to be the ideal environment for ease of building both simple and complex web-based applications in the most effective manner possible while still giving programmers the control they need. Sample topics include how to build basic PHP applications, how to access local and remote resources, how to access System i DB2 database tables from PHP, how to install and access MySQL databases on the System I, the basics of internet security, structuring a PHP application, and accessing external data sources.
