Oracle Technology Network has just published the first three installments of The Oracle+PHP Cookbook (http://www.oracle.com/technology/pub/articles/oracle_php_cookbook), on "Working with Dates and Times in Oracle and PHP," "Binding Variables in Oracle and PHP," and "Working with LOBs in Oracle and PHP."

Whether you are a Web developer or enterprise developer looking to combine the robustness of the Oracle engine with the simplicity, performance, and ease-of-use of PHP, you are bound to find several interesting "recipes" here, each contributed by PHP coders, that will help you take full advantage of both technologies.
