XML-Enabled Applications
Sep 17, 2007 @ 10:24:00

WebReference.com has an excerpt posted from one of Packt Publishing's latest PHP-related offerings, "PHP Oracle Web Development: Data processing, Security, Caching, XML, Web Services, and Ajax" (by Yuli Vasiliev). This specific chapter talks about XML-enabled applications and how PHP fits into the mix.

Both PHP and Oracle provide comprehensive support for XML and XML-related technologies. Practically, this means you can perform any XML processing either with PHP or inside an Oracle database. [...] This chapter explains how to effectively use XML techniques and technologies available in PHP and Oracle when building XML-enabled PHP/Oracle applications.

They cover the processing of XML in PHP/Oracle apps (including the SAX, DOM and SimpleXML methods), working with XPath and processing the XML in the other half of the two - Oracle's XML processing functionality.

Check out the Packt website for more information on the book.

DevShed:
Creating an RSS Reader: the Reader
Feb 09, 2007 @ 11:43:48

In a new tutorial from DevShed today, they walk you through the creation of a simple (very simple) RSS reader in PHP.

In this article we are going to discuss how to create a PHP-based RSS reader. It would be helpful if you know something about XML, but not really necessary. RSS documents have three main tags: Title, Link and Description. And they all do exactly what their names suggest. I will go into detail about these tags in my second article dealing with “building an RSS file.” For now, we will only focus on the “reading” part of the article.

They start with an overview, showing where you'll come from and where you're headed to. They include a section introducing the XML handing functions (SAX, not DOM) and use them in a chunk of code to read in the RSS file and handle the contents.
