Subject Re: Tomcat 3.2 beta and PHP
Date Wed, 15 Nov 2000 18:36:09 GMT
Hello Christian,

I'am happy to see someone else in the world has tried to use PHP and Tomcat 

Sooo!! Which version of PHP work (or doesn't work) on Windows?

For the moment, I only really try on SUSE 7.0. with Apache. Which results 
did you get?

Personally, I get the following:
- exchange of simple data like boolean, string, int, double and array of 
string (String [][] for example).
- I wrote a class who is running in Tomcat to make some request from PHP 
and give the result to PHP. Problem: it crashes sometimes. I compiled PHP 
whit jdk1.3 from SUN and run Tomcat whith the samke jdk, adn know it seems 
to be stable. But....!!!!!
- with phplib, I can use common session variable with PHP and Tomcat. The 
adavantage: you can reach the session variable from PHP and from others 
Java classes/applications.

The problems I found:
- Generally, php as servlet doesn't seems to be really stable (Tomcat 
crashes, not really often, but I am not hapy with it).
- Sometimes mit Tomcat hang up (it doesn't answer to www request).
- if I make an include in a  PHP file and use the same include later, I 
become some strange result : page not completly downloaded.

Bye! / Tschuess!

I've tried this as well, and was really happy with the results. However please
take into account that the windows versions of PHP are quite different in 
of stability. Some versions just fail to cooperate with Tomcat, crashing
reproducably, however most versions work just fine ... :-)
