99.99% is get data from here, apply some fairly trivial rules, and put it there.
We aren't solving the travelling salesman problem, or anything close to being non-trivial imo.
Adding typing information to variable names makes things really ugly.
Furthermore if you have to add typing information to the variable names and/or document how does this imply less work?
Have you actually worked with java web applications AT ALL? Please tell me why you can't "add more hardware" to java applications? EVEN if you wrote an application that is not distributable you can easily cluster tomcat (or any other servlet container) using sticky sessions. This is almost trivial to set up. Need more power? Add another tomcat instance. If your application was written to be distributable then its...a no-brainer...and ahem if you are working on the sort of app that can't run on just one server....you'd do that. But more importantly....the part of scalability that is being talked about in this post is that of the code. PHP's code is not scalable.
Large web applications have thousands and thousands of source files being worked on by many people....there is no sensible way to manage this with PHP.
