The last two weeks have been pretty engineering heavy for me, thus the slow pace of updates. What I’ve been working on are several BAM-related technologies. First, the Sudoku demo has been simplified and clarified. I’ll be writing a tutorial based on it soon which I’m also hoping to publish in the Flash & Flex Developers’ Magazine. Next, I’ve been working on building a PHP/BAM bridge. This is pretty exciting and shows the real power of Quercus: you can write true event-based programs in PHP. This is not something that is done easily or cleanly in the C implementation of PHP. The first example of this will be an XMPP chat server. Basically we’re moving PHP beyond the realm of simple HTTP web applications to have the full power of the Java platform.
