ITJungle.com:
Use PHP to Bring i5/OS Resources to the Web
November 06, 2007 @ 09:31:00

ITJungle.com has posted another article in their series looking at PHP on IBM's i5/OS platform that's already included an overview of System i and a very basic look at PHP's structure.

This article provides an overview of the API toolkit, and a collection of Application Programming Interfaces (APIs) that facilitate PHP programs accessing and working with i5/OS objects.

The article comes complete with diagrams of the stacks for both LAMP and iADP as well as an overview of the Zend Core API and a code example of how to make a connection to the backend and send off a message (SNDMSG) to the local system.

Zend:
Zend Technologies and COMMON Create PHP Advisory Group
July 18, 2007 @ 12:56:00

In a new press release (as posted on the ITJungle.com website), Zend has announced a collaboration between it and the COMMON Group to create a PHP advisory group:

Just before the July 4th holiday, Jim Dillard, the IBM alliance manager at Zend, and Ron Newman, who is chairman of COMMON's Advocacy Team and president of technology consulting firm Newmark Technologies, sent out a joint appeal via email for people to join the Zend Advisory Group.

The idea behind the group is to get together a bunch of COMMON members and have them provide direct input to Zend so the unique capabilities of the System i platform can be addressed more fully by Zend's products and to help Zend better understand how to interface with and deliver products to midrange customers.

Wondering if you (or your company) are in the group they're looking for? Here's some of the requirements:

  • Are you currently a programmer using the System i?
  • Have you installed Zend Core for i5/OS?
  • Do you have a PHP application running now?
  • Do understand the process of creating a call to the DB2 database?
  • Can you invoke RPG commands via the PHP toolkit?

If this is you and you'd like ot get in on the group, send an email along to Ron Newman for more information.

Zend Developer Zone:
Zend Announces i5/OS V5R3 Compatibility, PHP Redbook, and RPG Web Cast
January 18, 2007 @ 09:28:00

The Zend Developer Zone has an announcement posted about a few new updates from Zend including i5/OS V5R3 Compatibility, a new PHP Redbook, and RPG Web Cast.

The partnership between IBM and Zend is bearing fruit once again. Not satisfied with having PHP run on IBM's i5/OS V5R4, now the two companies have put their heads together and back ported Zend Core for i5/OS to V5R3.

They've also released the redbook for it that shows you how to install, configure, and work with PHP on System i using Zend Core for i5/OS and Zend Platform for i5/OS.

As far as the webcast - you can sign up for that here and find out "Why RPG programmers should care about PHP".

Daniel Krook's Blog:
Zend and IBM update PHP for i5/OS
January 15, 2007 @ 08:35:00

Daniel Krook has written up an entry talking about the collaboration that Zend and IBM have created in the form of PHP for i5/OS.

OK, I'll be the first to admit that I'm not all that familiar with the nuances of IBM's server brands, despite working for Big Blue. [...] If you *do* happen to have an IBM System i machine, you might be interested in some of the following new developments:

The two items he points to are the latest Zend Core for IBM that's been released and a new Redbook IBM has published to accompany PHP's introduction to IBM's world and to help you get it installed.

As was mentioned here previously and now in this post on the Zend Developer Zone, PHP has arrived on the i/5OS platform thanks to a collaboration from Zend and IBM.
