Integrate ApplinX and PHP

Has anybody experience with PHP ?
A customer has an AS/400 application that needs to be web-enabled via ApplinX. A new web based application is under construction in PHP. Some master data will be managed in this application. There is a need to pass control to the via ApplinX web-enabled AS/400 application bringing it in the correct screen and passing PHP arguments to AS/400 application. Next some futher GUI actions will continue on the web-enabled AS/400 screen to finally stop the applinx session and come back to PHP.
ApplinX SOA is not an option for the customer … He says …

Hello Jose,

I never used PHP with Java classes, but with a quick research in the web, there are tools for this kind of integration
For example: http://il2.php.net/java , http://php-java-bridge.sourceforge.net/pjb/
