Microsoft’s open source community manager, Peter Galli reported on this post about the new technology to bridge Microsoft .NET developer’s platform and widely popular PHP server side scripting language. The open source community is glad that this finally came up. PHP programmers can now connect to data services with ease. It was not possible for Apache based clients to draw data form MS SQL servers with .net platform.

They use RESTful service interface to connect the previously stranger (to each other) internet data sharing methods. Sources say that full support will be available in Visual Studio 2008 SP1 and the forthcoming 2008 build.

The PHP toolkit is available at Microsoft CodePlex site for open source projects.
