Gents,I can confirm all what John is ligning up. I have just made a similar check list with the 3 first bullets - and had it confirmed by IBM. The "modPHP" and the application server will stay in PASE ...

Aaron, I am excited by the prospects of PHP for the future of System i but am a little disappointed at the initial implementation. My understanding is that they are using the toolbox call API.PHP runs in PASE and interfaces to the outside world via a "parallel" Apacheinstance that communicates with the regular Apache server. They do intend to tighten integration in the future but as far as I know that's how the current setup works. As to the "webify" bit - I think it is meant in the sense that if yourexisting apps have their UI clearly separated from their business logic youcan put a PHP front end on it. The Zend Studio IDE is free to System i users - assumedly because WDSC is"free" to System i users while other IBM platform users have to pay for it.It seems to me that the PHP community is remarkably similar to the System i community. Full of enthusiastic zealots!! I'm looking forward to spendingmore time with it.For those who want to "play" before V5R4 gets to their shop, try XAMPP - itwill load and configure PHP, MySQL, Apache etc. on your PC and give you a real easy intro to the world of PHP.
