comment Kind of Servlet (J2EE) for PHP?
@ChaibiAlaa Unless you have very high traffic, keeping it in the database would be sufficient. Otherwise, you can implement some caching solutions the way some CMS systems do. They generate PHP files with the data, and regenerate them as the data changes.

comment Kind of Servlet (J2EE) for PHP?
You seem to be asking about a configuration file. Make a PHP file and in it assign the variables you need. Then include that file at the top of your application. That's how most open source PHP projects handle it.

comment I've started, but have never completed an application. How does this affect my employability?
It depends... if you have a suitable college degree or coursework, it may not be an issue. If you don't have that, and all you have for evidence that you can write programs is an unfinished application, yes, that can be a problem for you.

comment Multi-tenant database design
@Crono no, as I said we did not delete most things so all it would take is toggling the status of the order.

comment Multi-tenant database design
@Crono well, backups are no different. We also offered an export if the customers wanted their data in a usable format (csv, excel, etc). Restoration was never much of an issue. We didn't delete most things, so if someone deleted a building, for example, we'd toggle the deletion flag for it. There was also an import process typically used for bulk import from other systems, but could be used to restore a company's data in an emergency.

comment Multi-tenant database design
I've never seen the advantage of maintaining a separate database per customer like this. All the multi-tenant systems I've worked on kept everything in a single database and used a customer/company id to logically keep the customers' data separate.

@Dennis have you looked online for "PHP expression parsers"? There seem to be some out there already.

comment Multiple Canvas in the Browser — How to Proceed?
I just don't see what the benefit of using iframes would be here. It doesn't give you any more flexibility, and it complicates the page.

comment Authenticate Joomla user from an external app based on Node.js, Javascript and MongoDB
@user2190986 a Joomla database is typically just a normal MySQL database (though I believe it could be others as well). So it seems what you really should look for is how to access SQL databases from node - for which there are plenty of resources online. You'd connect to the database and query the joomla users table to do the authentication.
