Well you could take care of the backend of the system using PHP and feed the
output to a flash application, which updates every so often by re-requesting
the PHP page (this page is merely returning variables to flash).

Of course, if  you know java then you'd probably want to take that route.

Aside from Java and Flash you could still achieve a similar effect using the
meta refresh tag - updating the page every 60 seconds or so.
