ZEND COLLABORATES WITH PAYPAL TO STRENGTHEN PHP WEB SERVICES
Open Source Community Gains Significant Enhancements to the PEAR::SOAP Module
CUPERTINO, CA â June 21, 2005 â Zend Technologies, Inc., the PHP company, and creator of
products and services supporting the development, deployment and management of PHP-based
applications, today announced it collaborated with PayPal, a leading online payment company, to
contribute updates to the open source PHP SOAP project, delivering a new version of PEAR::SOAP.
PEAR::SOAP version 0.90 updated many previously known issues and vastly improved the module's WSDL
and namespace support. By giving these improvements back to the PHP community, developers
worldwide are better able to work with all Web Services from their PHP applications.
âWorking with Zendâs PHP experts, we were able to make improvements to the PEAR::SOAP project
and contribute them back to the Open Source community,â said Dave Nielsen, Manager, PayPal
Developer Network www.paypal.com/pdn. âThis contribution benefits PayPal developers and the
entire PHP 4 community by advancing its Web services support.â
Zend is committed to improving PHP 4 support for Web services while also providing an upgrade path
to PHP 5. The new contributions to the PHP SOAP project will enable PHP 4 developers to use
PayPalâs Web services-based features.
The contributions also support PayPalâs new software development kit (SDK), which was released
this week. The SDK includes sample code and applications that support PayPalâs application
programming interfaces (APIs), and helps developers to more easily integrate with the PayPal
platform. The SDK is available from http://www.paypal.com/sdk

translate to extraordinary benefits for the Open Source community at large.â
