Alas, this is pretty much the case today.  However, there is a JSR in progress
that is excplicitly designed to define a standard way that scripting languages
and Java can interact (and share access to Java objects, and the HttpSession
instance, along the way).  Keep an eye out for progress on:

  http://jcp.org/en/jsr/detail?id=223

Note that the Zend folks are actively involved in this effort, so we can expect
that support for PHP in particular should be pretty well planned.
