At one point in time, Chris Tankersley was the technical lead on two different projects. One was an application his company was purchasing from a vendor that was being written in Java (and had previously been written in .NET by another vendor, who then switched to Java, and then abandoned the project), and one was being built in-house with PHP on the IBM i. They were the same product for two different product lines that they offered, but time constraints forced them to build two products in tandem. In the end, the PHP application was completed and delivered to end-users in about 7 months from start to finish, while the former project languished. In this webinar, we compare the two projects in the tools and technologies that were used to integrate with the IBM i backend as well as programming.
