Using the PHP Java extensions allows you to extend your PHP code, via all the Java class’s now available. Some potential uses are;
1. Use PHP to send a fax, via the Hylafax Javaclient http://www.hylafax.org/
2. Use PHP to access your Remedy application http://www.tek-tools.com/jticket/
3. Use PHP to generate bar codes, via a Java Barcode class
4. Convert your Applets so that they can generate a GIF / JPG to display to non Java browsers.
In the next article on Java and PHP, we hope to show how to set up PHP with Java on a
Linux box, Error checking, show you how to generate a JPG file from a Java class and
use some classes readily available on the Web.
