Alfresco Software Inc. announced that has integrated the open source programming language, PHP, into its development environment. This enables PHP developers to create new content-centric applications and dynamic web pages that access Alfresco. PHP is an open source programming language. It is a simple scripting language that is especially suited for Web development and can be embedded in HTML. This makes PHP an especially complementary language for the Alfresco ECM environment. Alfresco has used connectivity tools that use Web Services and a Service Oriented Architecture to hide much of the complexity for the PHP developer. This enables the full range Alfresco capabilities to be made available to PHP developers.
