JSP Analog?

Is there a way to create a variable that has a scope of “application” like you can with JSPs? In other words a variable or data structure that can be accessed by multiple php scripts but is only defined/created in one php init script. It will have the same values for all users so it should not be in a “session” data structure.

Hi, welcome to SitePoint.

If I understand you correct, you could implement the Front Controller pattern in PHP.
