LA JOLLA, CA — May 16, 2006 – Caucho® Technology, Inc., a leader in providing open source solutions to ensure high performance and reliability for large-scale Java Enterprise Edition (Java EE) applications, today announced the addition of PHP to its list of supported features.
Caucho® Technology’s PHP implementation, named Quercus(TM), allows developers to use the PHP5 language for a presentation layer and at the same time to implement business logic using Java. Since Quercus will be included as part of Caucho® Technology’s Resin application server, developers will now be able to integrate Java and PHP within the same application.
Scott Ferguson, lead architect of Caucho® Technology said, “Quercus implements the PHP language in Java.” Ferguson continued, “As a Java PHP implementation, Quercus provides three primary benefits: allowing Resin to run PHP applications natively, giving PHP applications the stability and security of a Java application server, and letting Java applications use PHP as a presentation layer.”
Caucho® Technology’s announcement of the addition of PHP to its list of supported features will take place during JavaOne, Sun Microsystems Worldwide Developer Conference in San Francisco from May 16-19, 2006.
Caucho® Technology will have a booth at JavaOne and will also participate in a session entitled “Sharing the Java Platform” designed for press and analysts to take place at the Moscone Center on Tuesday, May 16 at 3:00pm in room 123.
Cameron Purdy, President of Tangosol said, “If you can support 6x as many PHP users on a Java application server as you can on a “native” Apache server, then why not move over to Java?” Purdy added, “Thanks to Java and the ingenuity of the Caucho® team, the savings in hardware, rackspace, electricity and systems management will add up to millions of dollars for large-scale PHP systems.”
With numerous added features, increased speed and load balancing, Caucho® Technology’s Resin open source application server has earned an industry-wide reputation as a robust solution to the Java application challenges that web developers most often face. Caucho® Technology has developed the protocols Burlap and Hessian to produce fast solutions for the rapidly expanding web services market.
