PHP 5 in Java

Quercus is Caucho Technology's fast, open-source, 100% Java implementation of the PHP language. Quercus is a feature of Caucho Technology's Resin Application Server and is built into Resin - there is no additional download/install. Developers using Resin can launch PHP projects without having to install the standard PHP interpreter ( as Quercus takes on the role of the PHP engine.

Quercus + Amfphp = Good Things :)

amfphp - Flash remoting for PHP

amfphp has a new url: .I have been following the domain name mess and I know what a headache it can be. I have had a few client forget to renew their domain names and the @#$% hits the fan when websites go down and the email stops working.

Flex 2 Inline Item Renderer Tip

I stumbled upon an unknown property as I was trying to use an Inline Item Renderer on my DataGrid Columns. If you use the <mx:component> tag with your inline item renderer and try to have your component call an event in your main application you will get a nasty "Access to undefined method blah blah". This is because your Inline Item Renderer is unaware of what exists in your main application. But you can use the outerDocument property to access event handlers in you main application.

<mx:VBox >
<mx:Button label="Remove" click="outerDocument.remove()"/>
