PHP WSDL generator

Everyone who has ever created a webservice in PHP, using the PHP5 native functions, NuSOAP, PEAR, ..., certainly has cursed a lot while creating WSDL files for those services. Today, I found a nice helper class, Webservice Helper, which does a lot of tricks for you. Webservice helper creates the WSDL file for ... Read more »

Use Zend Framework on IIS

A while ago, I was experimenting with the Zend Framework. At first, I tried running a small sample on top of IIS, but unfortunately, that did not work... On Apache, it worked like a charm. Very nice, but what do you do when your site runs on an IIS machine? I started experimenting. First of all, I found out that Z... Read more »

PHP on IIS7 (RC1), but unsafe!

Simple SAX parser for PHP

Yesterday, I was working on PRAjax. The UpdatePanel did not work completely as I wanted it to work: in the background, the whole page was still fetched and updated. A cleaner way would be to just fetch updated content and not the whole page. In my search for a PHP HTML parsing class, I found a lot of libraries, but... Read more »
