Christopher Jones' Blog:
Time for testing the final PHP 5.2 release
August 10, 2007 @ 07:57:00

On his blog today, Christopher Jones mentions some updates that are going to be included in upcoming PHP versions as pertains to the Oracle functionality that comes bundled in.

What is happening with PHP 5 is that some bigger enhancements will be merged into a planned PHP 5.3 release. [...] Even if you are still using PHP 4, or PHP 5.1, any testing you do on 5.2.4 right now will benefit you when you get around to upgrading. PHP 5.2.4 includes OCI8 (and PDO_OCI) of course, as the code base is picked up from PHP's CVS system.

There's also a list included of bugs that have been fixed in this latest version of the PECL OCI8 connectivity including a problem with a memory limit, a segfault issue when rebinding a re-executing a statement with LOB and an allowance for the statement cache size for non-persistent connections.

Both ASP and PHP are languages used to build Dynamic Web sites that can interact with Databases and exchange information. ASP (Active Server Pages) is from Microsoft and is used with IIS (Internet Information Server) that runs on Microsoft Servers. PHP (Personal Home Pages) is from Rasmus Lerdorf, who originally designed this parsing language which was later modified by different people. It runs on Unix and Linux servers and it also has an NT server version.

There are a lot of differences between ASP and PHP.

They go through several topics comparing to two - things like cost, speed, and database connectivity. The information provided here isn't anything groundbreaking, and there's no real conclusive choice (despite their "choice" at the end) between the two. What it really boils down to is the old "right tool for the right job" kind of situation, really...
