mod_rewrite Boot Camp

mod_rewrite has been referred to as the Swiss Army Knife of Apache URL manipulation. I get a bit of a chuckle out of this, because I think of a Swiss Army Knife as the tool that you use when you don’t have the right tool on hand. Be that as it may, mod_rewrite has become an essential part of the toolbox of any Apache HTTP Server administrator. –by Rich Bowen

Real-time Data, Old School Style

The real-time web is coming upon us at a steady pace. Sooner or later, as a web developer, you will be confronted with questions from your customers about it. What makes real-time so interesting? Is it the fact that you can refresh parts of a webpage with new and interesting information, even without an explicit request from the user? Probably, yes, but keep in mind that you will have to broaden that to a bigger perspective. –by Jonas Mariën

Bug Zapper: Zend_Rest_Client Should Send a File

I had a break from writing this column because I have been a little bit ahead of schedule with the writing – very much unlike right now – where my deadline is rapidly approaching at a scary pace. To get inspiration for my next bug fix attempt, I did what I would do if there were no bug nagging me in my dreams: I opened up the ZF issue tracker. I was expecting to open my favorite filter with unresolved critical bugs, but it appears there is an open issue assigned to me (by me :)) and oh no, not again, it’s for Zend_Rest_Client. –by Bart McLeod
