JavaScript/PHP Chat

A question was recently asked on the UUG mailing list about how PHP chat applications are able to push content to a browser. I had helped in the development of an ASP/JavaScript chat server at work, and knew that except for this excellent resource at the Apple Developer Connection, there weren't a lot of good articles on the topic of Remote Scripting with DHTML. I had been meaning to put together this article for some time, and the UUG thread was the impetus in finally getting it done.

My latest addition to the code site includes a tutorial on how to create a chat application using some PHP, JavaScript and MySQL. Even if you're just starting out with PHP and JavaScript, this article will teach you everyrhing you need to know to get started.
