While there are many books on learning PHP and developing small applications with it, there is a lack of information on “scaling” PHP for large-scale, business-critical systems. PHP is now starting to make inroads into large-scale business-critical Web systems. The introduction of PHP 5 two years ago brought enterprise-grade capabilities to PHP — capabilities that have been expanded upon and solidified with the subsequent release of PHP 5.1.

“This book should rightly be considered the bible of Prototype and Scriptaculous.”
— JavaLobby Prototype and Scriptaculous are libraries that extend standard Ajax. They make it easier to program Ajax and provide powerful features like drag and drop and animation. In this book, developers learn by playing and see how the libraries work in the real world. As experience with Ajax increases, developers want the standard Ajax capabilities they repea… More >>
If you have been browsing the web for quite some time, then you might have come across cookies which allows your browser to remember passwords and other information that may have anything to do with your actions on a particular website. These can be preferences that would allow the browser or webpage on the browser to determine your habits online allowing it to perform the requested operations faster and easier. A cookie is called a client-based information for it is stored on the client computer (yours when you browse the web) and is taken or stored intact along with all the information it contains for a specified amount of time or till you delete your browsing history and cookies. If you have come across tracking cookies, these are information that defines you to a particular web page which is called upon on your next visit. When creating cookies with your page, there are specific parameters (cookies by the way are created using user-made code in PHP) that must be remembered so as not to fill up the hard disks of your client computers as they visit your website page again and again. The function setcookie is used with the following syntax:
setcookie(var1, var2, time)
The var 1 stands for the name of the cookie you are creating, with the var 2 containing the value of the said cookie and the last parameter is the time which specifies the amount of time it takes for the function to kill (terminate/delete) the cookie. A more defined and elaborate explanation of the function can be found on this page.

PHP is a scripting language originally designed for producing dynamic web pages. While PHP was originally created by Rasmus Lerdorf in 1995, the main implementation of PHP is now produced by The PHP Group and serves for PHP as there is no formal specification. PHP is free software released under the PHP License and is a widely-used general-purpose scripting language that is especially suited for web development and can be embedded into HTML. It generally runs on a web server, which is configured to take PHP code as input and create web page content as output. It can be deployed on most web servers and on almost every operating system and platform free of charge. PHP is installed on over 20 million websites and 1 million web servers.
PHP itself is a server-side programming language and it is vastly used by software developer to build dynamic web pages and to develop textual user interfaces. As a programming language it is vastly used in different segments while developing a professional website. With the help of PHP coding we can develop synergistic, capable and money making websites.

An application server is a server that hosts an application program to provide business logic for third-party application program. An application server combining or working with a web server is called a web application server in many usages. A web application server can be a flexible web application development and deployment tool.
The application server is frequently observed as a part of a three tier application, which comprises of a GUI (graphical user interface) server, business logic or application server and a database server. In a more descriptive way it can be viewed as:
Front end or first tier (personal computer)
A middle tier (an intranet server or LAN)
Third tier or back-end (database server)
Advantages of Application Servers in the Web and Software Development Scenario
In the web & software development scenario, an application server offers various advantages including:
XML, Data, Dates, Web Services, and Web APIs Maximize your productivity through the use of proven, powerful, reusable PHP components In-depth coverage of a range of important PEAR packagesMany code examples provide a clear and practical guidance In Detail PEAR is the PHP Extension and Application Repository, and is a framework and distribution system for reusable, high-quality PHP components, available in the form of “packages”.
