Multi-Tier Application Programming with PHP: Practical Guide for Architects and Programmers (The Practical Guides)

While many architects use PHP for projects, they are often not aware of the power of PHP in creating enterprise-level applications. This book covers the latest version of PHP – version 5 — and focuses on its capabilities within a multi-tier application framework. It contains numerous coding samples and commentaries on them. A chapter discusses object orientation in PHP as it applies to the multi-tier architecture and other chapters discuss HTTP and SOAP, the two communication protocols most useful in tying together multiple layers. There is also coverage of database design and query construction as well as information about tricks you can use in generating user interfaces.

  • Covers PHP as it relates to developing software in a multi-tier environment―a crucial aspect of developing robust software with low cost and ease of use as design goals.
  • Makes extensive use of Simple Object Access Protocol (SOAP) and Web Services as implemented in PHP and NuSOAP.
  • Shows precisely how to make use of the InnoDB table type newly available in MySQL. InnoDB supports true referential integrity and row-level locking.
  • An application example (a multi-currency bookkeeping application) runs throughout the book, showing various PHP capabilities as well as the database interaction.

Also disappointed I have to agree with a previous review, this book is a disappointment. This book falls somewhere between a blog post and a sophomore CS student term paper. They even pulled that old slightly larger font trick to thicken this book.The code is so ridiculously simple, repetitive, and inefficient that its almost tedious to read through. I understand the code isn’t focused, but their should at least be some logical code. Example after example is so repetitive you really only need to read…

Very disappointing I hate this book. All the book is the repetition of the same code with very, very few differences. The description let’s argue that is pointed to advanced users but the content is so basic that it is hard to believe. It uses SOAP in its most basic fashion. The code is so poor (also the HTML and the JavaScript used). The code is written in a so invasive fashion that if you strip it (and is not a bad idea), you will find no more than 30 pages.The Multi-Tier is just supposed to be good and…
