Launched the Caladan PHP webapp handler

I’ve launched Caladan, an open source webapp handler for the IxAS application server, providing a MVC (Model View Controller) framework to the IxAS application server. It is a component of Solarix iConnect Frameworks.

Being distributed with the Mozilla Public license, Caladan is free to use and distribute.

Caladan’s main purpose is to offer a Model View Controller (MVC) system for IxAS web applications, with a central configuration file for controlling the behaviour of the whole site.

Main features

  • Uses Carthag applications platform
  • Entirely OOP
  • MVC system
  • XML based configuration file
  • Lightweight
  • XML configuration is cached

Caladan is covered by the Mozilla Public License.

You can download Caladan from the Carthag Projects download page.

iConnect architecture for PHP 5 released

I’ve released most of the components of PHP 5 iConnect architecture, based on my PHP 5 Carthag platform.

This architecture is similar in many ways to J2EE and offers: a platform, an enterprise application server (like EJB), a web application server (like Tomcat) and a portal server. Its runtime is based on PHP 5 and Apache.

Here is a better description of the iConnect architecture.
