Using XML - A PHP Developer's Primer (Part 3)
Mar 24, 2006 @ 07:04:06

For those of you that have been following along, PHPBuilder.com has posted the third and final part of their "Using XML: A PHP Developer's Primer" series. Even if you haven't been keeping up, it's worth a look.

In this edition, they look at more advanced topics - a deeper look at Ajax and how to style the data you get back with XSL, both on the client and sever.

To start, they look at XSL - what it is, how it's used, and some code examples of both the XML and XSL structures to style XML data into a valid HTML page. Of course, you'll need the PHP extension to get this all working, so they step you through the installation/enabling of that as well.

They touch on other topics (like passing variables to a stylehseet and XSLT in Javascript) before getting to a simple XSLT and Ajax example - pulling book data and formating it with examples of both the PHP and Javascript sides.

Matthew Batchelder's Blog:
Writing Your Server-Side Ajax Handler
Mar 23, 2006 @ 12:37:17

Matthew Batchelder describes in his latest post about the other half of an equation he demonstrated in this previous post - the creation of an Ajax handler.

In my recent post on 'Ajax; Templating; and the Separation of Layout and Logic,' I refer to an Ajax Handler that sits server side to handle Ajax calls. Some elaboration is in order.

As I have stated in the past, I'm a huge fan of Prototype AND I choose PHP as my language of choice...so my examples will be using both, but the idea is portable.

His example is a very basic one, pulling in the data from the $_GET values and, with a combination of dynamic function calls and the use of eval(), provides a simple "framework" to handle your Ajax calls. There are two versions of the same thing - one using if statements and the other a switch and various cases.
