Overview

What do eBay, Amazon.com and CNN.com have in common? They're all applications that integrate large databases with the Web. The popularity (and power) of these applications stems from their accessibility and usability: thousands of users can access the same data at the same time without theneed to install any additional software on their computers.Web Database Applications with PHP and MySQL offersweb developers a mixture of theoretical and practical information on creating web database applications. Using PHP, and MySQL, two open source technologies that are often combined to develop web applications, the book offers detailed information on designing relational databases and on web application architecture, both of which will be useful to readers who have never dealt with these issues before. The book also introduces Hugh and Dave's OnlineWines, a complete (but fictional) online retail site that allows users to browse, search a database, add items to a shopping cart, manage their membership, and purchase wines. Using this site as an example, the book shows you how to implement searching and browsing, store user data, validate user input, manage transactions, and maintain security.If you want to build small to medium-scale web database applications that can run on modest hardware and process more than a million hits a day from users, this book will show you how.

Editorial Reviews

From The Critics
Introduces techniques for building applications that integrate large databases with web interfaces. Using a three-tier architecture, the book focuses on the middle tier and the application logic that brings together the fundamentally different client and database tiers. The authors explain the principles behind searching, browsing, storing user data, validating user input, managing user transactions, and security. Annotation c.
