implement a web service to take advantage of PHP. You can use PHP to send
output directly to the browser. I have used PHP to implement web services
before but the clients were Windows apps that already had built-in SOAP (and
other formats) web service features. I used PHP on the backend to provide
that data via a web service. Does that make sense?
Food for thought:
An eagle may soar but a weasel will never get sucked into a jet engine.
A closed mouth gathers no foot.
Never squat with your spurs on.
