Summary and next steps
In this tutorial, you:
- Installed the Eclipse Development Environment for PHP.
- Installed the Project Zero environment for PHP development in Web 2.0.
- Developed an application with a simple HTML form and a PHP back end.
- Exported the application and ran it from the Zero command line.
- Created some errors and debugged them.
- Extended the Ajax application with an extra callback and a new Dojo widget.
Now that you have completed a small Ajax Zero application, you can expand your use of the Dojo library and PHP back-end scripting. Why not combine these tools with the Data Zero component and build a real data retrieval system using Apache Derby? The Employee Demo PHP sample supplied with Project Zero is a good place to start. The Project Zero Documentation link in the Resources section will take you to the Project Zero demos.
If you would like to learn more about the Zero Global Context and other relevant topics such as Resource (REST) Handling, see the Project Zero Developer's Guide in the Resources.
We hope the exercises in this tutorial have been helpful to you in getting started with Project Zero. Be sure to visit projectzero.org if you want to get involved with this growing community. Check back with developerWorks often because we are planning to feature even more Project Zero content.
