    Remote php (jellycounter, bravenet)

    Ok, I was wondering how jellycounter and bravenet make counters. I notice that it seems to be php with java, or java with java. My question is, how do they do this, because I would like to do this withought having to use iframes.

    I don't really know java (or javascript), but I have made a image php counter here:

    Thanks for the help!

    What they are most likely doing is counting the number of hits from that location, and that's how they know what the counter should read.

    For example -- suppose the counter script is foo.php?id=4xf432x and you display the counter like this <img src="foo.php?id=4x432x">

    foo.php will look up your key (4x4323) in a database, add one to the number of hits from your key, then (based on other preferences) -- output the counter image.

    Well, what I want to know is how they make it include the php script, and it seems they use java, and I would like to know how they do this. This could be all java, but if so, I would still like to know how to include a php script without using iframe (or php includes, as that server probaly doesn't have php.)

    how to include php:
    <img src='php script here'>

    for java its somewhat essential for grabbing some env variables not sent thru http request and pass them thru http
