  1. 1. PHP and Rich Internet Applications Mike Potter http://www.riapedia.com/ mike.potter@adobe.com
  2. 2. Fast Easy
  3. 3. <?php if (!$link = mysql_connect('mysql_host', 'mysql_user', 'mysql_password')) { !! echo 'Could not connect to mysql'; !! exit; } if (!mysql_select_db('mysql_dbname', $link)) { !! echo 'Could not select database'; !! exit; } $sql! ! = 'SELECT foo FROM bar WHERE id = 42'; $result = mysql_query($sql, $link); if (!$result) { !! echo "DB Error, could not query the databasen"; !! echo 'MySQL Error: ' . mysql_error(); !! exit; } mysql_free_result($result); return($result); ?>
  4. 4. function PMA_getSearchSqls($table, $search_str, $search_option) { global $err_url, $charset_connection; // Statement types $sqlstr_select = 'SELECT'; $sqlstr_delete = 'DELETE'; // Fields to select $res = PMA_DBI_query('SHOW ' .

  6. 6. RIA Characteristics • Full applications • Could replace desktop apps • Applications, not web pages
  7. 7. What’s in it for me? for my employer?
  8. 8. Rich Internet Applications “ are the next evolution of the web. ” Source: Gartner Research, May 11, 2005
  9. 9. Builds on existing skills and knowledge
  10. 10. $
  11. 11. Saved ~160 GB in 3 hrs
  12. 12. User experience matters
  13. 13. Client Options • Ajax (In Browser) • Java (Sun) • XUL (Mozilla) • XAML (Microsoft) • MXML (Adobe Flex)
  14. 14. Ajax Examples
  15. 15. XUL Examples
  16. 16. XUL Examples Songbird
  17. 17. XAML Examples
  18. 18. To Think About • Reach - How many people will view this application? What platform will they be on? Is it an open or closed platform? • Rich - Can I integrate rich content easily, like video, audio and animations? • Tools - What will I use to build this application? How will I debug?
  19. 19. PHP and RIAs • Read in XML from a PHP backend (REST)
  20. 20. REST with PHP <?php //connect to the database mysql_connect ... //get the data mysql_query( “SELECT * from recipes”); ... //transform into XML print “<recipes><recipe id=’1’ name=’cake’/><recipe id=’2’ name=’hotdog’/></recipes>”; ?>
  21. 21. PHP and RIAs • Transfer PHP objects to the client directly • JSON - JavaScript Object Notation • AMF - ActionScript Messaging Format
  22. 22. JSON and PHP
  23. 23. Flex with AMFPHP <?php //connect to the database mysql_connect ... //get the data $ResultObject = mysql_query( “SELECT * from recipes”); ... return( mysql_fetch_object( $ResultObject ) ); ?>
  24. 24. How to make money?
  25. 25. How to make money?
  26. 26. Recap • Build PHP apps as services that can be used by any front end - Ajax, XAML, Flex etc... • Rich clients and components allow you to simplify your PHP code
  27. 27. What’s next?
  28. 28. Web Compiler for Flex Applications • http://labs.adobe.com • Allows you to create MXML, ActionScript, upload to the server and compile there, similar to developing PHP applications
  29. 29. Apollo enables... • Offline / Occasionally Connected • Applications can run in background • Network • HTTP • XML-RPC / SOAP / Rest based web services • Binary and XML sockets • File I/O • Local storage / Settings API • Custom Chrome • Shape • Alpha
