Microsoft Offers Open Source Link For PHP, .NetAug 04, 2015
Microsoft's Developer and Platform Evangelism Interoperability team has introduced an open source project to bridge PHP and Microsoft's .Net programming model, Microsoft representatives said.
The company's PHP Toolkit for ADO.Net Data Services uses REST as a bridge between Microsoft's software platform and the popular PHP scripting language, said Peter Galli, Microsoft open source community manager.With the kit, developed by Persistent Systems, PHP developers can more easily take advantage of ADO.Net Data Services, which are a set of features in the .Net Framework for building and consuming data services from the Web.
PHP toolkit generates proxy classes based on metadata exposed by ADO.Net Data Services. Developers can call from their code these classes at runtime, for programming against ADO.Net Data Services using local PHP classes.
