Check out Rebin -- it unlocks any command line applet / program by turning it into a web service. Very interesting and worth deploying for general services.

It amazes me how many modern web developers don't know their design patterns and it occurred to me that perhaps it's because JavaScript and PHP books don't have good examples. Check out the link below for a fee eBook to learn design patterns in JavaScript. A related link for PHP is at http://www.fluffycat.com/PHP-Design-Patterns.
