Open Source SIG: Building & Deploying LAMP Applications w/ActiveGrid



  • Monthly Meeting of the New Open Source Software SIG


    Presentation Overview:

    Building and Deploying LAMP Applications with ActiveGrid

    Learn how to build and deploy scalable LAMP applications with the ActiveGrid open source project. See how to build applications rapidly with the ActiveGrid Application Builder, a graphical environment that supports Python, PHP, and XML standards. The ActiveGrid Application Builder is built with Pyton and wxWidgets and includes the SQLite database for iterative development. This session will show the tool's graphical editors of XML standards for data source integration (XML Schema), web page and service flows (BPEL), dynamic user interfaces (XForms), and data queries (XPath). Also see a demo of deployment on the ActiveGrid Grid Application Server, which extends Apache with session replication and peer-to-peer registration features. The ActiveGrid Grid Application Server is compatible with MySQL and Postgres, as well as commercial databases.
