These days I was busy with my website, I prepaired it using JSP/Java/Servlets and Net beans, but my provider still didn’t send me information about the J2EE facilities of their hosting, I had to launch my website so I moved to PHP for first time.
PHP is like JSP but it doesn’t compile to a servlet or any other binaries, PHP translates pages as they are requested then it generates an out put. I found that its very useful to make reports.
In PHP you just need to make your file as a text document then insert some PHP tags for your specific purposes then pass that file to PHP interpreter:
$ vi myfile.php
$ php myfile.php
Then it will show your text containing result of PHP processed data. I enjoyed using PHP, its fast and powerfull, you can find more information about PHP in its official website, documentation is very good and prepared in different formats.
