Translating JAWS from PHP4 to PHP6 (Woo I'm a mentor)
Apr 12, 2007 @ 13:43:00

Several PHP proposals made it into this year's Google Summer of Code and, in a new post today, David Coallier points out one specifically that he's being a mentor for - a "revamp the internals of Jaws and migrate it from PHP 4 to PHP 6".

That's right, the first open source framework using PHP6 is going to be developed this summer to help the main development of PHP6. I am glad to be the mentor of this very interesting project and looking forward in getting many bug reports, use cases, fixing help, debugging for php6.

The project, being created by Nicolas Bérard-Nault will be working through the following:

  • E_STRICT compliance
  • the systematic use of real object programming
  • Unicode character support
  • the transparent use of different database types
  • the use of the most current features available in PECL and PEAR
...and that's just the tip of the iceberg. It will be broken up into three phases to make things a bit easier: planning the new internals, actual development, and testing the work that's been done.
