12 years of Oracle extensions in PHP
By cj on Apr 16, 2009
The oracle.c and oracle.h files for the "oracle" PHP extension were checked into the php/fi 2.0 source code by Stig Sæther Bakken on this day in 1997. (Hat tip to Johannes Schlüter for leading me to the files in CVS)
In the last 12 years PHP has progressed and grown in many directions. Along the way, the "oci8" extension replaced "oracle" to become the recommended Oracle database extension for PHP, and the "pdo_oci" driver was introduced for the PDO extension. Many fine people have contributed. I'm proud for Oracle to be part of the PHP community.
Here's looking to the next 12 years.
