James McLean's Blog:
Book Review Apress' Beginning PHP and Oracle
June 04, 2008 @ 11:16:37

James McLean has done his own review of the APress book "Beginning PHP and Oracle":

Published in August 2007, Beginning PHP and Oracle: From Novice to Professional weighs in at a hefty 763 pages long. It's one for the bookshelf, not for the backpack thats for sure!

He goes through the sections of the book - the PHP intro, some of its "Enterprise thinking", mentions of MySQL and SQLite and, of course, the large amount of Oracle content (both in using Oracle alone and in connecting the two together).

If you're in the market for a book to perhaps learn PHP and would like to move onto advanced concepts later on, this book is worth a look. If you're an experienced PHP developer and looking for an introduction into the world of Oracle, this is the book for you.

Review Beginning PHP and MySQL From Novice to Professional, Third Edition
May 27, 2008 @ 10:24:28

On freegrok.com a new review of an APress PHP-related book has been posted, a look at W. Jason Gilmore's "Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice to Professional, Third Edition".

Walking through your local bookstore will show that there is definitely no shortage of books related to PHP and MySQL. These ubiquitous technologies have been many a beginner's foray into the world of web development. Since both are free and widely supported it's a safe bet that the software you create can be used in almost any circumstance with relative ease. Beginning PHP and MySQL: From Novice to Professional, Third Edition is a good resource to get you started on your way.

The reviewer breaks down the chapters of the book and points out two chapters (web services and MVC with the Zend Framework) that he though were noteworthy for budding developers to look in to.

All in all W. Jason Gilmore has done an excellent job of bringing a wide ranging topics into a manageable size and retaining much of the value for later use.

Beginning Ajax with PHP From Novice to Professional, Part 2
January 12, 2007 @ 07:04:41

PHPBuilder.com is back with part two of their look at building an application combining PHP and Ajax (as excerpted from the Apress book "Beginning Ajax with PHP: From Novice to Professional"). Part one for the series is here.

A nice feature that I first noticed as being received positively by the Internet community is the auto-complete feature in Gmail. [...] The next example will show you how to do the same thing - although it's not quite as in-depth as the Gmail solution.

They start with the CSS and Javascript to make the application work, including a simple XMLHttpRequest object for the Ajax connection. The "autocomplete" function is called via an onKeyPress event in the form on the page, grabbing the content and firing off a request to the backend script. The also include a series of screenshots that show the different steps of the process from entering the information down to outputting the results.

Beginning Ajax with PHP From Novice to Professional
January 05, 2007 @ 08:27:00

PHPBuilder.com has another in a series of book excerpts posted on their site today. This time, it's a look at Ajax and PHP as pulled from the Apress book "Beginning Ajax with PHP: From Novice to Professional".

The ability to make a call to the server without a page refresh is one that is quite powerful, if harnessed correctly. With the help of the powerful PHP server-side language, you can create some handy little applications that can be easily integrated into any web project.

They take some time to explain what an Ajax connection is before getting into the code - a basic example that just shows/hides content. They include both the HTML/Javascript to handle the front end and the PHP to handle the backend creation of the calendar (the content) itself.
