Article published in IBM WDTJ

An article I wrote for IBM’s developerWorks site went live this week with the May issue of the IBM WebSphere Developer Technical Journal.

The article covers the roles of a web application, where PHP and WebSphere fit in, and how to install them together with Apache and DB2 on a Linux server. I also provided a sample application as a proof of concept. The example code consists of a J2EE Struts application which serves as a content management system to a PHP-driven public website.
