Default calls to php classes from javascript

Hi-

I have been given a project which I _thought_ was in PHP, but apparently has to involve a login script that is in javascript. I've never really done anything with javascript, and I'm wondering if there's a way to call a PHP class from javascript. Any info you could give me would be appreciated -- I'm still trying to learn how the code is set up for this project, so there's nothing that I don't necessarily need or not need.

Thanks,

--Matt

There isn't any direct way for a client-side scripting language to communicate with a server language, except perhaps some special IE mumbo-jumbo (you know as much as I).

The login script, does it actually log users in with JavaScript? It validates the names with it? That's highly insecure, if so. Anyone that knows how to click "View Source" can look at your passwords.

My guess is that it does some pre-submit work and then submits the form to PHP.

HTH,

Snib
