Hi, i have a java class ..ie: runApplet.java and once built, runApplet.class
I also have a website where the user presses the start button and the applet is supposed to run...
however i cannot figure out a way, in PHP, to actually call that java applet...
It works with HTML...but how do it in PHP??

Thanks...

No typcial not so easy.

The quest is why do youn want to run a JavaApplet on the Server if the applet is supposed to run in the Browser of the user?

What about lets say its not an Applet.
Lets say i have a Login button which when pressed has to execute java code that will authenticate and perform some other security features.
so i have a class "sec.java"..

i do not really wish to "integrate" php and java, i just want that class to be called and executed from the same path.
There is no simple way to do that?...or whats the best way without "integrating"

on some sites i see this...

<?php
// get instance of Java class java.lang.System in PHP
$system = new Java('java.lang.System');
...
...
...

would that be appropriate for me...i would put method calls in the constructor of the class being instanciated and then it would execture from there....does that sound good or..?

if u just want to execute a java class with or without passing command line parameters then u can fire java compiler/inter.. using the exec command

the statement will be some thing likw this

$returnvalue=`<path_to_java_compiler>/java java.class`;
echo $returnvalue;

or

$cmd="<path_to_java_compiler>/java java.class";
exec($cmd, $returnvalue);
echo $returnvalue;

or

$cmd="<path_to_java_compiler>/java java.class";
system($cmd, $returnvalue);
echo $returnvalue;


and more...
