DWR-like toolkit for PHP?

In the Java World, a toolkit called DWR (Direct Web Remoting) allows the Developer to use Java functions from Javascript.
From the DWR website
DWR works by dynamically generating Javascript based on Java classes. The code does some Ajax magic to make it feel like the execution is happening on the browser, but in reality the server is executing the code and DWR is marshalling the data back and forwards.


Is there a PHP-equivalent for DWR?

Cheers,
RS

Hmm, interesting concept. DWR works by inspecting the Java classes and creating client-side proxies that use Ajax as their transport. I haven't heard of any php equivalents, and don't know enough about php (anything really) to know if has the inpection facilities to easily implement something along these lines.

Thank you Eric!

The link Eric posted nicely summarize the existing frameworks. In the AJAX PHP frameworks category you will find the complete list of existing frameworks specially designed for PHP.
