Ibuildings Blog: Supporting a PHP migration

Ibuildings Blog: Supporting a PHP migration
On the Ibuildings blog today Andy Thompson has a new post looking at some of the challenges of migrating PHP applications up from the now end-of-development-life PHP 5.2.x versions up to PHP 5.3.According to a recent Twitter poll, we found that over 50% of developers are already working with the latest 5.3 release. An additional 35% is already in the process of migrating to 5.3. This means that the majority of developers see the importance of upgrading and are already taking action, well before PHP's...

Setting Up A PHP Southwest UK User Group

Setting Up A PHP Southwest UK User Group
London and the North West of the UK have their own successful PHP user groups a and it's time we had one here in the South West I've setup a PHP SW group on Google to get us started, and we're already talking about where (probably the centre of Bristol) and when to have our first meet-up. Why not join the group and the discussion? I'm hoping to appeal to folks using PHP who live or work in the Bristol, Bath, South Wales and South West of England regions to come along and join in. There must be plenty of...

Giorgio Sironi's Blog: Refactoring PHPUnit's getMock()

Giorgio Sironi's Blog: Refactoring PHPUnit's getMock()
Giorgio Sironi has a new post to his blog about a "refactoring" he's done of PHPUnit's mock objects to make their creation with getMock easier.Not an actual refactoring, but at least the introduction of a layer of indirection, a Parameter object, called PHPUnit_Framework_MockSpecification. I have already written the patch in a branch of my github repository. They are actually two independent patches, since PHPUnit core and the mocking component are in two separate repositories.If you create a basic...

Zend Developer Zone: Get involved in the PHP community: 5 easy steps that take less than 5 min. each

Zend Developer Zone: Get involved in the PHP community: 5 easy steps that take less than 5 min. each
On the Zend Developer Zone there's a new post from Cal Evans about five ways to get involved in the PHP community that take about five minutes each (and can both help you and the community).ome developers develop because it pays the bills. They don't want to be part of the community, they have other passions. I am ok with that, I don't want anyone involved who doesn't want to be. Other developers however tell me they didn't know the community existed, they don't know how to get involved or they are just...

On the php|architect blog today Bill Karwin looks at a new library - Crystal - a database library to help make it simpler to work with SQL (and make it more human-readable).Martin [Rusev]'s project is called Crystal.

Bill also mentions some of the things the...

ThinkPHP Blog: MySQLnd Plugins: Writing a MySQL Query Logger in PHP

ThinkPHP Blog: MySQLnd Plugins: Writing a MySQL Query Logger in PHP
On the ThinkPHP blog there's a recent post looking at writing a query logger in PHP as a mysqlnd plugin using the mysqlnd_uh extension.A new approach to implementing a query logger and potentially more complex features such as monitoring or read/write-splitting is the MySQLnd Userland Handler Extension (mysqlnd_uh, pecl website). The extension lets you register a PHP class as a proxy for every MySQLnd connection. Every call to a function to MySQLnd (usually indirect through mysqli, mysql, pdo_mysql) is...

Matthew Weier O'Phinney's Blog: Autoloading Benchmarks

Matthew Weier O'Phinney's Blog: Autoloading Benchmarks
Matthew Weier O'Phinney has a new post to his blog (following this post on directory iteration for autoloading) with some of the benchmarks of different methods he tried for automatically loading the libraries his scripts needed on demand.During the past week, I've been looking at different strategies for autoloading in Zend Framework. I've suspected for some time that our class loading strategy might be one source of performance degradation, and wanted to research some different approaches, and compare...

Brian Swan's Blog: Understanding Windows Azure AppFabric Access Control via PHP
Brian Swan has a new post to his blog today that aims to help you understand how your scripts access the Windows Azure AppFabric and how to can control the levels with the Access Control Service.In a post I wrote a couple of weeks ago, Consuming SQL Azure Data with the OData SDK for PHP, I didn't address how to protect SQL Azure OData feeds with the Windows Azure AppFabric access control service because, quite frankly, I didn't understand how to do it at the time. What I aim to do in this post is share...

LIKE conditions with Zend_Db_Select

LIKE conditions with Zend_Db_Select
Despite all the implications of using LIKE in MySQL, sometimes it's quite useful for a proof-of-concept to be able to use it. Even though this is a rather trivial example, I hope it will be of help to whoever is wondering how to use a LIKE in a where using a Zend_Db_Select::where() or Zend_Db_Select::orWhere() and did not manage to find decent documentation about it. As you can see, we bind a parameter to the where() method using the ? symbol, then when assigning the value of this parameter - second...

Oracle vs. Google... and the web?

Oracle vs. Google... and the web?
Unless you've been living under a rock, by now you've heard about the case that is certain to keep the armchair lawyers busy for years to come: Oracle vs. Google. It's already been dissected elsewhere, but in a nutshell: Sun owned their GPL-licensed Java virtual machine, and various patents on it; Google wrote their own JVM for the Android platform, Dalvik; Oracle bought Sun; Oracle uses those patents to sue Google over their JVM; Hilarity ensues. So what? How does that affect us, as PHP and Drupal...
