Product Description

Review

Michael McLaughlin calls his new book "PHP Web Programming" an enabling book. I'd go further and call it a desert island book. It is the only thing you'd need to carry. It has much reference material strategically placed in the text, well thought out examples, and teaches how to build applications.

Want to know how to write an HTML form to do HTTP Authentication? Want to know about PHP's POSIX file function? Want to know how about the Oracle database architecture? What about PHP strings, objects, and error handling? Need to learn about Oracle's SQL, PL/SQL, LOBs, REF CURSORS...? Want to know how to use Oracle's BULK COLLECT functionality to improve performance? Or simply need to install Oracle, PHP and Apache for the first time and create a web page? It's all here.

The book comes complete with a CD containing all necessary software for Windows and Linux. This includes the Oracle Database 10g Express Edition, Zend Core for Oracle's PHP stack, and the Apache web server. The CD also contains the extensive sample code and lots of useful documentation.

The author's solid-gold pedigree with Oracle technologies includes working at Oracle and writing "Expert Oracle PL/SQL" for Oracle Press. This experience shows. But the Oracle-centricity of the author does not impact the PHP aspect of PHP Web Programming. The first half of its 700+ pages is devoted purely to PHP. His current position as a professor at Brigham Young University brings a thoroughness to the text, and, no doubt, his students were helpful in developing ideas.

This fully-featured book will expand everyone's knowledge of Oracle and PHP.

Disclaimer: This is an Oracle Press book and obviously associated with my employer. I reviewed an early contents list and have been acknowledged in the book. (Christopher Jones on OPAL 2006-11-13)

5.0 out of 5 stars Best Intro book on PHP 30 Jan 2007
By M. Sale - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
I found this book to be fantastic for learning PHP, and an amazing hidden gem for All Oracle web apps.

The format of this book allows the experienced developer to go right to their area of weakness and get just the info they need for either PHP or Oracle web development. For beginners with either Oracle or PHP5, you're well served with this book alone. In particular I found the appendixes in the back a great way to learn how to develop ANY web application for oracle with examples in PHP. So an experienced PHP developer who's a deer in the headlights with databases will gain a solid understanding and real world skills.

Chapter 13 has an exhaustive look at writing a "real" database application using Oracle and PHP. Most books shy away from OCI connections, this one jumps right in and helps you understand not just the how, but the why.

You'll find this tackling of real world solutions repeated with things like handling LOBs. Again, most books do a simple case avoiding real world complications, this book attacks and conquers the details masterfully.

One VERY important point: This book applies php web development on ANY edition of Oracle, not just express. Instead it limits its scope to the foundations of the database that are included in the free Express edition, but all skills are equally relevant for standard and enterprise editions.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Chance to Actually Understand PHP 10 Mar 2008
By C. Robinson - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
As a student within a technology field at a university, I have been able to use this book in a few of my own projects.

I can personally say that it's been something that has helped me to understand concepts in the PHP programming language. The example code used is simple to understand as well as easy to manipulate into projects that you wish to do.

The chapters have been appropriately linked together so an individual may either read the chapters in a consecutive manner and build their understanding up within PHP, or you may really focus in on a principle that you would like to apply more fully in your abilities.

Also, I want to add that the Glossary appears to be well-defined with the terms making it easier to navigate for a user's desired curriculum of study.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book! 18 Aug 2008
By Mladen Gogala - Published on Amazon.com
Format:Paperback
Excellent book! As the author of a similar book, I must admit that I thoroughly enjoyed it. It not only deals with PHP in very systematic fashion but also covers OCI8 in great detail. Examples are great and very instructive. First class work! Congratulations!
