Editorial Reviews

Christopher Jones on OPAL
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.
