Today we’re looking at using our REST services from a PHP site.  Because (apparently) most PHP programmers use simple editors, and not IDEs, to create their web sites, we decided to use Notepad++ to do our development.

In the real world, we’d recommend going with a “Responsive Web Design” approach, but to keep the example simple and focused, we’re going to simply make a site that caters to a mobile form factor.

Our example is going to connect to web services that we built to expose a non-relational database SALESORDER file from a 30+ year old application.  As anyone skilled in the art will know, you can substitute anything old or new into that formula.  We have a previous video that shows how to create REST services for this data, and another one that shows how to consume it from a Windows Phone 7 application.

I wanted to create an environment that used the standard http socket for web work, so that remote systems like my iMac would be OK with it. Basically, I'm lazy, so these are the steps to get PHP running with IIS 7 on Windows 7.

A rambling account of my thoughts that led to the choice of RESTful web services for our mobile application examples.

This blog post follows a combination of research and exploration and real sales and marketing initiatives around mobile solutions, but when it comes to posting, I want to bring it back to real-world concepts. This post explores the choices that we made and how they might apply in your environment.

FusionWare has long been involved in helping customers with diverse needs to integrate their Line of Business (LOB) systems with their webs, BI, and other initiatives.  We have both a broad and deep understanding of real-world data and middleware, as well as a ready grasp of business drivers and limitations.  This means that we know how to make and recommend solutions that are practical, within the confines of the customer’s requirements and budget.

This is the first in a series of blog posts about building out a mobile presence for your company's web presence.  FusionWare has a long history of assisting our customers in finding practical, elegant solutions for difficult platforms.  We have a strong specialty in finding ways to get legacy line of business systems to participate with modern technologies, including AS/400, MultiValue, Oracle Financials, Open Source systems and much more.  The modern technology of interest, this time around, is mobile.

A recent foray into QR codes for a customer has me intrigued at the possibilities...

Some years ago, I had to explain to a board of directors what made our products and services so compelling and what defined our customers.  The marketing people (including some Gartner analysts) loved a term I coined to explain part of it. "High Captivity Legacy System" was my attempt to explain the pleasure and pain that many of our MultiValue, AS/400 and other customers were experiencing, and how we brought exceptional value to them.

In doing our Nothin’ but .NET series, we realized that we had failed to blog about Web Forms. We did create a YouTube video, but it used Infragistics grid controls (it highlighted our ability to support 3rd party controls through normal binding.)

So here we look at creating a Web Form.
