Subject Tomcat Master for PHP Hosting?
Date Thu, 25 Sep 2008 12:32:13 GMT
Does anyone know if there is anything like this already...

What I need (want to do) is turn TC into a Virtual PHP hosting system...

This is the idea... one can layout a html/PHP site in tomcat...
Then point that at distributed servers out there, and use the "remote links" 
in JSP, servlets etc.

And it just happens... ie those "Virtual Sites" are deployed to remote httpd 
servers and it all just works.

Then there could be intelligent processing, like a form submitted to a 
remote PHP site is processed by tomcat... there will be bridges but I havnt 
got that all thought thru yet...

Then the idea is that from the company you run TC... its the brain... but it 
now can take advantage of all the cheap hosting PHP sites out there...

A kind of load sharing system... that can make use of dumbed down hosting 
And one develops on tomcat as if it was all right there on your machine...

The thing I'm after is making a kinda TC MASTER...

I dont know what others find, but locally if I talk to hosting services and 
mention Tomcat... I get a Oooooh, that will cost more... like its rocket 
science or something...

So I want to put tomcats brain into PHP without giving the brilliant admin 
dude a cranial embolism.

I think intelligence can actually be made very light... and the plebs can do 
the heavy lifting...
So in the end... the home site is the brain... running a whole worker 
population out there.

... Anyway thats the idea... does anyone know if there is anything like this 
... TC as a PHP god... sort of thing.
