Full Description

Taking care to focus solely on those topics that will have the most impact on experienced PHP developers, Pro PHP is written for readers seeking to take their understanding of both PHP and sound software development practices to the next level. Advanced object–oriented features, documentation, debugging, software patterns, and the Standard PHP Library are just a few of the topics covered in extensive detail.

Author and noted PHP expert Kevin McArthur also examines emerging practices and trends such as the MVC architecture as applied to PHP, with special emphasis placed upon the increasingly popular Zend Framework.

With Ajax and web services crucial to the success of today's web applications, the book concludes with several chapters covering JSON, the SOAP extension, and advanced web services topics.

If you're seeking to go beyond the basics, Pro PHP is the book for you.

* Required Fields

On page 218:
Zend_Loader::registerAutoload() is deprecated as of Zend Framework 1.8.0, and will be removed in 2.0.0. Use this instead:

require_once('Zend/Loader/Autoloader.php');
$autoloader = Zend_Loader_Autoloader::getInstance();
$autoloader->registerNamespace('AppNamespace_');

Also note that this breaks auto-loading of the model class throughout the rest of the chapter. I think the model class must now be included in your AppNamespace's library folder now. (?) I'd appreciate any advice on this.

On page 224:
Missing <tr> </tr> tags within <thead> </thead> tags.

On page 266:
