COLOMBO, Sri Lanka, Aug. 22 -- WSO2, the open source middleware company, announced today the launch of the WSO2 Web Services Framework for PHP (WSF/PHP) 1.0 open source framework for providing and consuming Web services in PHP. WSF/PHP 1.0 is the only extension to the popular PHP scripting language that supports the full Web services (WS*-) stack. For the first time, developers can bring to PHP the security and reliable messaging that are required for trusted, enterprise-class SOAP-based Web services.
WSF/PHP 1.0 is one of the first PHP extensions to support the Web Services Description Language (WSDL) on both the client and server side, as well as backward compatibility with the PHP5 SOAP extension. As a result, developers can create new PHP-based Web services and enable the use of existing code in Web services that take advantage of the WSF/PHP’s enterprise-class capabilities.
WSF/PHP 1.0 is a binding of the Web Services Framework for C (WSF/C) into PHP, providing a fully open source PHP extension based on Apache Axis2/C, Apache Sandesha2/C, and Apache Rampart/C.
“PHP is one of the world’s most widely used scripting languages for creating interactive Web applications, but its broader adoption in the enterprise hinges on the ability to support the enterprise functionality required for business-critical Web services,” said Sanjiva Weerawarana, CEO of WSO2. “With WSF/PHP 1.0, we extend our commitment to enabling a heterogeneous world of Web services by providing organizations with a trusted platform for integrating PHP into their service-oriented architectures.”
“Zend and WSO2 share a common goal of providing best-in-class open-source software for developing and deploying Web services,” said Andi Gutmans, co-CTO and co-founder at Zend Technologies. “WSO2’s WSF/PHP, with its full support for the WS*- stack, provides a strong complement to our proven PHP development platform. Together, they empower the developers supporting more than 20 million PHP Web sites with unprecedented capabilities for delivering true, enterprise-class SOAP-based Web services.”
The WSO2 Web Services Framework for PHP supports basic Web services standards, including SOAP 1.1, SOAP 1.2, WSDL 1.1 and WSDL 2.0. It is fully tested and provides proven interoperability with Microsoft .NET, the Apache Axis2/Java-based WSO2 Web Services Application Server (WSAS), and other J2EE implementations. Key features of WSF/PHP 1.0 are:
WSF/PHP has been tested on Windows XP with Microsoft Visual C++ versions 7.1 and 8.0, as well as with Linux GCC 4.1.1.
The WSO2 Web Services Framework for PHP 1.0 is available today. As a fully open source solution released under the Apache License 2.0, WSF/PHP 1.0 does not carry any software licensing fees. WSO2 offers a range of service and support options for the WSO2 WSF/PHP 1.0. These include consulting, custom development, and sponsorship of open source feature development; development and production support; and training.
