PHP on Google App Engine?

leave a comment »

Bud and I did a little research:

  • While the Google App Engine does not natively support PHP, Quercus–a Java implentation of PHP serves as a workaround for this problem
  • (Sir Rom is quite hesitant about this as development of Quercus has been stagnant for 3 years I think.)

  • People who have used Quercus even added that it surpasses native PHP in terms of speed and functionality. Faster since it will be compiled in Java (vis-a-vis emulation) and as to functionality, you can make use of Java’s extensive libraries that are not present in PHP natively
  • (With the above comment, this will be irrelevant, haha!)
