Get Start a new eZ Publish project – Part I

In the past, I wrote a post briefly introduced the eZ Publish CMS. In these two series post, I will get into the technical details on how to actually start a new eZ Publish project. We are going to set up a starting point of eZ Publish project, named “Multiline”. This project will contain two independent web sites under the same installation. The two web sites, one of which will be accessed via a single domain with language switch between French and English, and another will accessed by a different domain with only the French language available. At the end of this article, you will learn how to get eZ Publish ready for different projects requirements, include: multi-sites, multi-language, different access method and SVN integration. (more…)

Mysql client uses older authentication method in PHP 5.3 on windows?

Just found out the if I use PHP5.3 on windows, I can’t connect to my Mysql5 server. It says my client is too old. After I switch back to PHP5.2.9, things get normal. So, it means the PHP5.3 for windows used a older version of library to compile the code? I don’t know. It took me a while to find out the problem.

A brief summary on Starting an eZ Publish project or before starting

For the past about six months, I am working on the eZ Publish CMS of the eZ System. I feel it has some unusual characteristic compare to other CMS: joomla, drupal, XOOPS to name a few. From the projects I built and am building, I have outlined some points which a Project Manager may need to get clear before push the work to developers (If only this would be true, my life would be so much easier :) ).

Review, php|architect’s Guide to Programming with Zend Framework

The zend.com are initiating a beta certification program on Zend Framework. I received an email informed me that I could get a 50% discount on the exam fee and a free study guide if I schedule and attention the exam before the end of this month. I do have some working experience on the Zend Framework before ( I have built a small project use it recently ), but I feel my knowledge on Zend Framework is still not adequate for passing the exam. So, I have ordered the PHP Architect’s book: Guide to Programming with Zend Framework. (more…)

Curl better than simplexml_load_file when web screen scrapping

As in my previous post, I briefly introduced how you can use SimpleXML object to load various web services’ API query urls, if you so choose to mashup a website with data provided by the various websites, such as YouTube and Amazon. Of course, the pay off comes when you use some affiliate code in your query, such as the famouse Amazon’s ECS and you did a pretty well job on your page layout & design, and seo to attract many visitors to you sites.

How to use SimpleXML parsing XML data with namespace and CDATA

There are many social network websites (e.g. YouTube) and big brand websites(e.g. Amazon, Yahoo) use REST or SOAP or even RSS web services to provide the enormous data for developers. Using these data, we can build a website virtually with no own database at all, all the information are come from these big sites. The nice thing is that, virtually all of the data returned for your web service client request are a XML data stream. So, we can use the nice PHP5 built in SimpleXML object to parsing the XML data stream, and format the representation of the data according our own website needs. However, the XML data format vary from site to site, some of the XML data returned from the sever, includes namespace and CDATA; if this is the case, you need find a way to access a sub item in the XML data use the same ” -> ” syntax.

Zend PHP5 certification Exam study review 12: supplementary III

Ok, this is the last part of my reviews. This post listed some WEIRD and STRANGE questions I found in the phparch’s simulator exam. You may think these are some advanced features of the PHP5 language, but some of them are actually mention in the GUIDE also. However, some of the questions, I found that there maybe some errors in the question itself; in this case, I marked with the “*” in front of the question. Therefore, some of the answer I gave maybe not right, or maybe I get the meaning of the questions wrong. So, if you have any comment on this post, please feel free to comment or send me a message. Thanks!
