About this book

Pro PHP XML and Web Services is the authoritative guide to using the XML features of PHP 5 and PHP 6. No other book covers XML and Web Services in PHP as deeply as this title. The first four chapters introduce the core concepts of XML required for proficiency, and will bring you up to speed on the terminology and key concepts you need to proceed with the rest of the book. Next, the book explores utilizing XML and Web Services with PHP5. Topics include DOM, SimpleXML, SAX, xmlReader, XSLT, RDF, RSS, WDDX, XML-RPC, REST, SOAP, and UDDI.

Author Robert Richards, a major contributor to the PHP XML codebase, is a leading expert in the PHP community. In this book, Richards covers all topics in depth, blending theory with practical examples. You'll find case studies for the most popular web services like Amazon, Google, eBay, and Yahoo. The book also covers XML capabilities, demonstrated through informative examples, in the PEAR libraries.

About the authors

Robert Richards, an independent contractor, has worked in various fields including medical information, telecommunications, media and e-learning. Having been exposed to XML since its inception and used it for various projects during his career, his most extensive work with the technology was within the e-learning space. He helped created a proprietary XML based application server which used XML for data publishing, defining application business logic as well as data querying. He was also the lead engineer for the company?'s involvement in SCORM (Shareable Content Object Reference Model), used for Web-based learning, established by the U.S. Department of Defense through its Advanced Distributed Learning (ADL) initiative. After becoming the latest casualty of the dot-com implosion in 2001, Rob had his first taste of PHP and began contributing code to the domxml extension in 2002. Since then, he has become one of the authors of the DOM extension for PHP 5, contributes to the other XML based extensions and has authored the xmlReader, for PHP 5, and xmlwriter, for PHP 4.3+, extensions. Also on occasion, he contributes bug fixes to the libxml2 project found during the development of these extensions.
