This book covers developing web applications with Ruby on Rails. It discusses Ajax, directory services, and web services. The book details the configuration of Ruby on Rails with different databases such as MySQL, Oracle and SQL Server 2005. In addition, it makes a comparison with PHP, the most commonly used scripting language for developing web applications. The book also provides example applications that may be modified to suit a developer’s application.
This is the eBook version of the printed book. If the print book includes a CD-ROM, this content is not included within the eBook version. Over the past three years PHP has evolved from being a niche language used to add dynamic functionality to small sites to a powerful tool making strong inroads into large-scale, business-critical Web systems. The rapid maturation of PHP has created a skeptical population of users from more traditional "enterprise" languages who question the readiness and ability of PHP to scale, as well as a large population of PHP developers without formal computer science backgrounds who have learned through the hands-on experimentation while developing small and midsize applications in PHP. While there are many books on learning PHP and developing small applications with it, there is a serious lack of information on "scaling" PHP for large-scale, business-critical systems. Schlossnagle's Advanced PHP Programming fills that void, demonstrating that PHP is ready for enterprise Web applications by showing the reader how to develop PHP-based applications for maximum performance, stability, and extensibility.
The definitive reference to over 1,000 PHP functions and features includes complete coverage of PHP 4, including extensive coverage of Zend. Every PHP function is clearly illustrated with detailed examples.
This book introduces the various parts of the construction of a regular expression pattern, explains what they mean, and walks you through working examples showing how they work and why they do what they do. By working through the examples, you will build your understanding of how to make regular expressions do what you want them to do and avoid creating regular expressions that don t meet your intentions. Beginning chapters introduce regular expressions and show you a method you can use to break down a text manipulation problem into component parts so that you can make an intelligent choice about constructing a regular expression pattern that matches what you want it to match and avoids mat...
