To me PEAR looks more promising. The amount of coding which is
getting reduced is
pretty good. But once again people have to explore this options and use
them. Most of the
time there are ready made solutions on the Internet so people generally
use them rather than
Have a great day.

Tell me something, how many people write OOP code in PHP in the first
Even really "pro" application developers would tend to write a PHP
extension (in C++) which is all proper OOP and then simply use it in
PHP (ie.,. the extension will give a C++ based OOP interface to the
PHP layer). PHP can be a very good "bridge" between a real application
(C++ based PHP module) and the web server. Writing everything in PHP
is an overkill. Others' views may differ, though.
