Having Kittens: PHP-Java bridge & JGAP

Route planning in PHP: sucky to the utmost. You have to go and implement a nice genetic algorithm to get all of your coordinates and sort them by the most optimal A to Z ordering.

God help us all; whatever are we to do? I don't want to have to implement and test something like that! It makes my mind hurt!

So, before we all panic, there's a solution.
PHP-Java bridge
Installation on Windows

It's really painless to install: you don't even need a servlet engine.

What next?
Install JGAP.
Read Javadocs.

Hey presto: you've got a very powerful genetic algorithm framework at your fingertips. What else can you apply it to?
