Android PHP option planned for Javaphobes

Scripted response

Intelligent flash storage arrays

PHP is coming to Google's Android phones for those averse to programming in Java or going native.

The PHP for Android (PFA) site says here that its goal is to make PHP development in Android "not only possible but also feasible providing tools and documentation."

The project's main sponsor is open-source and Linux specialist IronTec, who said it's following the Zend model of PHP programming.

PFA uses the Scripting Layer for Android (SL4A), previously known as Androd Scripting Environment (ASE), which PFA has updated to work with PHP.

SL4A had only worked with Python, Perl, JRuby, Lua, BeanShell, JavaScript, Tcl, and shell. PHP, though, is one of the web's most popular scripting languages.

SLFA was updated with the addition of some Java classes to understand PHP. You can read more here.

Tip of hat to The H for spotting PFA, here. ®
