There is nothing explicitly like Java's linked hash tables - PHP arrays are just simple associative arrays. PHP 5 does have a standard library that may get yu some way towards your goal. See http://uk3.php.net/spl and perhaps one of the HEAP classes.

Maybe a more pertinent question is why you would need such a structure in the first place? PHP is not performance oriented in the same way Java is because with PHP running on a server with almost no user interaction (compared to a GUI) there is little need for such complexity.

foreach ($articles['Article'] as $my_object)
{
    $title = (string)$my_object->title;
    $my_associative_array[$title] = $my_object;
}
