We have had a PHP connector for 2 years that uses open source Java PHP
bridge software.  It took my Java program about 4 hours to add to our
U2WebLink middleware.

Although I applaud Kevin King for his work around for getting web access, I
cannot help worry about scaling.  So, you finally get this great PHP to
Unidata/Universe application working and your customer or boss wants more.
 You give him more and more until you break the model.

This reminds me of one my clients where I dragged them kicking and
screaming on the web about 9 years ago. They said they would only use a few
features and would rely on green screen for the rest.  Now, 30 clients rely
on the web to glean all of the information on a daily basis and 20 clerks
and managers produce 5,000 transactions per day and about 50,000 web hits a
day.  Good thing we thought about scaling.
