PHP security

Quick summary:

Our company has outsourced its internet site development to a LAMP shop. For now it's simply for displaying company product content. However, I can already tell that our business may want to hook into the back-office applications (in the future) for e-commerce and customer-related purposes.

Considering that our key back-office apps are Java based, should I worry about having a PHP based app facing the net? How to call our business logic?

Any help appreciated.

Umm, isn't it a bit late to be raising these questions, now that the decision has been made?

I could see a number of difficulties arising from the fact of using two different technologies, but why are you worried about security in particular?

I don't know if PHP has special facilities for accessing Java code, but otherwise web services as a very general solution comes to my mind.

I think PHP does. But I also think it's problematic(based on what I have heared/read).
