RIA’s using PHP Support in NetBeans
I have been blogging less on this blog these days, however lets focus back on PHP support after last 2 weeks of silence on my blog, where I had blogged about the workshop I did, and special guest entry.
Rich Internet Applications, really? Yes, you’re right. I am talking about RIA’s, this is something new I am exploring these days. So, as I am already in process of creating a PHP Web Application, backed by MySQL Community Server bundled in XAMPP Web Stack.
Its not on a large scale, neither I am doing it for my college, its something I am using as a base to get back to PHP and that too, using NetBeans Support is getting better and better, what are you upto?
So, where’s RIA in my application? Hmmm, actually I came across this documentation last week, while preparing the 4th edition of weekly newsletter. So, I thought of implementing auto-completion, and some more effects I discovered while exploring some Ajax toolkits like Script.aculo.us, Dojo, jMaki, etc.
This is best thing that has happened to me, when I was writing my first ever PHP Web Application last year, for college project. I simulated some cool stuff using Ajax. They were named as (what my friends told me) Accordion, User Authentication, Feeds, Instant Reply, Highlighted Notifications…
I didn’t use any Toolkit at that time, as I didn’t have much time to explore. So, I did every possible thing, I can to get the above functionalities done, in quick time. You might not even like the structure of the application It became complex, no modularity and some more limitations.
So, coming back to my current project, I am planning to use Auto-complete, some Slide-up/down effects, in-place editing too. Lets see what happens, as I start off again after a gap of nearly 1 year.
Anyways, I am starting off with this documentation, which Petr Pisl and Troy Giunipero pointed out. By the way, I got a mail recently about some bug fixes, nice I will try out the latest build, and update my editor hyperlink review.
