Book about building web applications with PHP

Hi!

I plan to develope a web application with PHP, and I am looking for a
book that aids me. I already have experience with PHP as well as
relational databases, but I never have written a big web application.
Moreover, I have programmed in other programming languages (mostly C++,
Java and C) and I have knowledge about UML, design patterns and
designing software.

I do not need a beginner's book, but a book that gives me some insight
in how to design web applications (perhaps MVC) and advanced (at least
from my point of view) topics like session management and security, and
perhaps perhaps the use of AJAX in the application. It should
concentrate on a web application using a relational database (from my
researches so far, I suppose that most books cover PHP and MySQL, which
is fine for me).

I have already searched the web and this group for book recommendations,
but there are many of them (some outdated), and it's hard for me to
separate the wheat from the chaff.

I would be very grateful if you can give me some recommendations
(perhaps with a short description of contents of the book, if you have
the time) or pointers to places where I can find more information.

Kind Regards & TIA,
Gernot

At least one that has (besides the often obligatory introduction stuff)
some practical examples in web-bases apps:

O'Reilly - Web Database Applications with PHP and MySQL 2nd Edition

In regards to PHP version this book is a little out of date, but I
love it. Advanced PHP Programming by George Schlossnagle is a awesome
book which covers caching, design, and lots of essential in depths
topics. It's in my bookcase.

PHP Programming by George Schlossnagle covers all the topics you asked
for and much more. I thought it was a very well written and helpful
book. It's on my self!

Thank you, this book has also been recommended to me in the German PHP
NG, so I think I will buy it.

Thank you (and Schraalhans) for your help!

Kind regards,
