Iwan Luijks:
E-mailing with PHP on Windows using Apache James
March 06, 2013 @ 12:02:48

Iwan Luijks has a recent post looking at how you can send email through PHP on Windows via the Apache James server.

eveloping in PHP on Windows? Yep me too! Unfortunatly in opposite to developing on Linux, sending e-mail from PHP on Windows requires some more setup than just a bit of sendmail configuration. In this post I explain how to setup an Apache James Server and use it for e-mailing from PHP, all from and to your localhost.

He walks you through the download and installation and includes the changes you'll need to make to get it up and running correctly. He helps you test it's working correctly and how to get PHP set up and pointing to it for mail delivery. Finally, he has a line of PHP (using mail) to test the install and send a sample message.

Professional PHP Blog:
James Gosling on PHP
March 13, 2006 @ 06:57:48

Via the Professional PHP Blog, there's a few quotes from comments James Gosling, the "father of Java", has made about PHP.

James Gosling, the "father of Java," recently commented on PHP: "PHP and Ruby are perfectly fine systems," he continued, "but they are scripting languages and get their power through specialization: they just generate web pages. But none of them attempt any serious breadth in the application domain and they both have really serious scaling and performance problems."

The headline here should be "Father of Java says writing web applications in PHP is simpler." Both .NET and Java have this be all things to everyone mentality. If you need that generalization, fine, but generalization is not without cost as Gosling points out.

Of course, Gosling defends Java over PHP/Ruby on the basis that they're "just scripting langauges" and not really made for the large-scale, general usage applications. The author also provides some links to articles about Flickr, one of the major PHP success stories.
