Yesterday I have (successfully) taken the “Zend PHP 5 Certification” examination. Before I go into details about the exam and my preparation for it, I’d like to sum up the examination for PHP 4.
On August 31th, 2006, I have passed the PHP 4 examination. While the exam itself was rather easy, I was pretty annoyed after the exam. I had chosen to do the exam in German language on the VUE registration form. This wasn’t a good idea of mine: The translation was very bad. On one of the questions I couldn’t even guess what the original English question might have been. And there was also a real error in the exam: I don’t remember the exact question, but I was a question about the understanding of regular expressions. Unfortunately, all possible answers were wrong (they all matched only one character, but the string from the question). My solution was then do chose the answer that seemed to be meant as the right answer (because the other answers had additional “errors”).
Today Olivier and I have “flooded” PEAR with new releases of Structures_DataGrid and its 19 subpackages. The reason for releasing all packages was a license change from PHP License 2.0 to New BSD license which is more flexible and compatible to other open source licenses.
The new major feature of the new release is streaming support. Until this release, it was impossible to use Structures_DataGrid for converting a huge database table into, for example, a CSV file. We offer now the possibility to fetch the data in chunks of, by default, 500 records from the database and to write these records into the CSV file, followed by the next chunk of 500 records, and so on.
New releases of both HTML_QuickForm_Renderer_Tableless (0.4.3) and HTML_QuickForm_DHTMLRulesTableless (0.2.3) are available. The renderer had only a little stylesheet change to achieve layout compatibility with Windows Internet Explorer 7. The DHTMLRules got support for multiple error messages (needed for groups), and there were some bug fixes.
