Want to leverage your Java code across other programming languages ? In this blog entry, Daniel Krook gives an overview on how to just this from PHP. He writes :
In essence, a PHP-Java bridge enables PHP developers to access Java code from within their applications and vice versa. The benefit is that you can reuse libraries or services deployed on one platform from code that exists in a different environment.
