I have received an advance copy of a new book called "Building Database
Applications on the Web Using PHP3" by Craig Hilton, Jeff Willis, Bjorn
Borud, Addison-Wesley publisher.
I reviewed the book. The book uses PostgreSQL as the backend for PHP,
and has several chapters dealing with PostgreSQL.
The book appears on Amazon, but not yet on Barnes & Noble or
Addison-Wesley's web sites. The Amazon URL is:
My book is still being written and is at:
The Amazon writeup is below:
Hundreds of thousands of web developers have discovered the ease and
power of PHP3 and PostgreSQL. Together, they form an integrated, robust
platform for building industrial-strength, interactive, server-side
database applications for the web.
Building Database Applications on the Web Using PHP3 provides everything
you need to understand and work with PHP3. This complete resource
presents essential background information and clear explanations of
PHP3, PostgreSQL, MySQL, HTML, Linux, and other relevant database and
Internet technologies. A step-by-step tutorial walks you through the
process of building PHP3 applications, featuring a series of
increasingly sophisticated applications that focus on such vital topics
as creating run-time generated graphics, database integration and
design, and login authentication.
You will also find a comprehensive reference to the syntax, grammar, and
function library of PHP3, organized both alphabetically and by type of
function. This reference incorporates numerous working examples that
demonstrate proper use of PHP functions and can be pasted directly into
your own applications. The accompanying CD-ROM provides everything
needed to install PHP and PostgreSQL under Red Hat Linux. Readers may
also log onto a private web site where all the real-world database
applications found in the book can be built from an Internet connection.
Whether you are just learning web-based development and PHP3 or are
already developing sophisticated applications, Building Database
Applications on the Web Using PHP3 is an accessible and essential guide
to this powerful web development environment.
