Managing Web Services with PHP
Sterling Hughes, Freelance Software Developer

Track: PHP
Date: Tuesday, July 08
Time: 1:45pm - 5:15pm
Location: Salon I

The creation of multi-tier projects gives development teams the opportunity not only to deconstruct an application in its fundamental components, but also pick-and-choose the best technology for each task.

As PHP is becoming a more natural choice for both front-end and backend components, it's important to understand how it can coexist and interact with other technologies through the use of web services.

PHP is a powerful language for both creating web services and for taking advantage of them in a multi-tier environment. This tutorial illustrates:

  • The main technologies behind web services: XML, XML-RPC, SOAP and (to the limited extent allowed by the current implementation) RMI.
  • Creating web service servers using the technologies above
  • Creating web service clients using the technologies above and communicating with the servers previously built

The tutorial examines a practical example and its implementation using different technologies.
