Quercus looks promising. One of the things with PHP is it's huge
library of modules - many of which are included in the default distro.
I'll have to see if there are any important PHP modules which haven't
been imported to Quercus. Having said that, if there is a real need,
an alternative library may exist in Java.

I am a big fan of the servlet containter architecture, and I vagely
recall resin being an awesome implementation - particularly for speed.

Quercus might well be the way to go for a casual PHP coder who is
looking to make the move to Java.

I'm tempted to port my PHP/XML framework (
http://xao-php.sourceforge.net ) - binding it to the Quercus
implementation (and Saxon).

I'd heard of something like this before, but had forgotten. The
implementation is probably quite mature by now.

Cheers.
