A PHP class library would be better off not basing itself off the Java class library API at all.
Unsure or not familiar with Java's class library API.

Java API as base for PHP library?
I agree that PHP needs a library of small, reusable objects. What I am wondering is if the other people advocating such a library (Harry, lastcraft, and many others) think about using the Java class library as a starting point for the API.
I think the Java class library API is well designed and would serve as a great starting point for development of a PHP implementation. Whenever I am writing library-type classes for PHP applications, I almost always end up creating classes that are a method to method copy of the corresponding Java library object's API.
I'd like to hear any arguments for or against using the Java class library API as a base for a library of small, resuable PHP classes.
