The project is focused on development of a multithreaded application server for PHP, written in PHP. Written in PHP to enable the collaboration of PHP community and to establish itself as a standard solution for enterprise applications in the PHP ecosystem.
The actual version has been tested on Mac OS X 10.7+ and Debian. On basis of the used components, however, on other platforms the operation should also be possible.
The implementation of a web application and the operation in the application server has to be as easy as possible. For this purpose, whenever possible, already popular and proven components will be used as standard solutions, for example Doctrine is the standard persistence provider. Also configuration by exception to start an application running is one the main paradigms. Keeping this in mind, the minimal configuration effort fits to most of the use cases. To enable collaboration of the PHP community the standard servlets that will be delivered covers a wide range of existing applications and frameworks. Additional development of future feature rich web applications based on popular frameworks will be supported with specific libraries and documentation.
