I wasn't purposely ignoring those issues. The point of the article was to debunk the scalability myth based specifically on performance. I agree that there are a number of distinguishing factors between the two platforms outside of the performance criteria.


On the stateless issue, there are a number of methods for providing background processing for PHP. There are message queues, background process servers, and batch processing just to name a few.


However, that is outside of the scope of the article, which is just about performance.

    Yup, you could even run PHP on top of J2EE to get what you need to build your app :-)
