Well, with a persistent session you can just store the connection in the HttpSession object. I do that all the time for my AS400 object, which allows me to make stateful calls to programs across multiple pages. It's not serialization; it's an object that is preserved between pages.

Can you create a stateful session in PHP and just store the connection that way? Stateful is really nice for lots of things.
