Michael O'Brien writes "Mbedthis Announces PHP Module for Mobile and Embedded Applications
Bellevue, Wash. March 30, 2004 Mbedthis Software, a leader in embedded web server technologies, today announced support for the PHP scripting language in its highly secure AppWeb embedded HTTP web server. In the latest development release, AppWeb 1.1 includes a PHP module for the high performance use of PHP and the LAMP architecture in mobile and embedded applications and devices.
"PHP and LAMP (Linux, Apache, MySQL and PHP) have has attracted quite a following in the Enterprise web application market. This module now allows embedded users to leverage the PHP technology in their devices and applications and extends the reach of LAMP into the growing embedded market" said Founder and Lead Architect Michael O'Brien.
Developers can now migrate existing web applications into mobile devices without changing their application model or having to resort to proprietary mobile platforms. "This AppWeb release allows PHP and the LAMP architecture to be effectively used in mobile devices and offline applications. Developers can now leverage their investment in PHP applications on the mobile side" said O'Brien.
Mbedthis has optimized the integration of PHP with AppWeb for maximum performance in mobile and embedded applications. AppWeb uses a modular multi-threaded core to deliver a highly secure HTTP server that excels in terms of performance, functionality and memory footprint. Embedded developers can selectively configure
enabled features for a memory footprint as low as 110K RAM. With PHP and SSL enabled, a complete server can run in under 2MB. This makes it ideal for mobile and offline applications. It can also be used for many embedded applications that require management, web services and web based user interfaces.
AppWeb is available under both an open source GNU license and a commercial license. Support and a security enhancement service are also available.
