PHP stands for Hypertext Preprocessor and is a server-side language. This means that the script is run on your web server, not on the user’s browser, so you do not need to worry about compatibility issues. PHP is relatively new (compared to languages such as Perl (CGI) and Java) but is quickly becoming one of the most popular scripting languages on the internet.
You may be wondering why you should choose PHP over other languages such as Perl or even why you should learn a scripting language at all. I will deal with learning scripting languages first. Learning a scripting language, or even understanding one, can open up huge new possibilities for your website. Although you can download pre-made scripts from sites like Hot scripts, these will often contain advertising for the author or will not do exactly what you want. With an understanding of a scripting language you can easily edit these scripts to do what you want, or even create your own scripts.
Using scripts on your website allows you to add many new ‘interactive’ features like feedback forms, guestbook’s, message boards, counters and even more advanced features like portal systems, content management, advertising managers etc. With these sorts of things on your website you will find that it gives a more professional image. As well as this, anyone wanting to work in the site development industry will find that it is much easier to get a job if they know a scripting language.

AJAX + SOA: Added Value for Enterprise Applications
Rich web interfaces add more value to next-generation enterprise applications designed on the progressive Services Oriented Architecture (SOA). AJAX is the advanced interface technology providing extended visual service, desktop interactivity and functionality. It adds value to SOA through better user interaction with both remote (internet, extranet) and local (intranet) enterprise applications. Adding RIA (Rich Internet Application) to existing enterprise IT infrastructure presents several benefits including operation cost savings, better control over document circulation and improved security.
