Developers can build PHP apps for Microsoft's Windows Azure cloud platform

Moving on plans to enable development of PHP applications for its Windows Azure cloud platform, Microsoft plans to demonstrate this week the PHP SDK for Windows Azure at TechEd India, a Microsoft representative said.

The SDK features development by RealDolmen, which intends to provide high-level abstractions for PHP developers to interoperate with Azure.

"The PHP SDK for Windows Azure focuses on REST and provides PHP classes for Windows Azure blobs, tables and queue, helper classes for HTTP transport, AuthN/AuthZ, REST, and error management as well as manageability, instrumentation, and logging support," said Peter Galli, senior open source community manager at Microsoft, in a blog post.

Microsoft's Vijay Rajagopalan, principal architect, also will reveal the launch of projects that offer samples and a toolkit for PHP developers to include Silverlight controls, Microsoft Virtual Earth maps, and Internet Explorer Webslices and Accelerators in PHP applications.

The projects are available on the CodePlex open source project site under a BSD license. A technology preview of PHP SDK for Windows Azure will be offered under a BSD license as well. A functionally complete version of the SDK is due by this fall.

Microsoft at the Mix 2009 conference in Las Vegas in March announced inclusion of FastCGI in the Windows Azure hosting environment, enabling developers to run Web applications on Azure that were written in third-party programming languages likes PHP.
