Why would someone wish to do that at the first place.
Those are completely different systems with completely
different technology. The only usage is consolidation of the
technology and lowering down the time for consolidation
to a particular technology.

The are some attempts for PHP like a simple CGI or a
JBoss Reflex, and even some project (think its commercial)
that has PHP engine and modules rewritten in Java.
However their main usage is for easing you to switch to
the real stuff (main Tomcat technology; jsp and servlets).
