So - I find myself "needing" to create a web app to keep track of my (and some friends) stats in League of Legends.
Researching a bit, I found that you can talk to the servers using RPC (really RTMPS) to get the information I want.
Basically, I am creating a web app that will let people pull their stats to a MySQL database. The code is PHP.
So, I now have a Java client that gets the data that I want, but - the response times are very slow on the queries so I am debating how to translate this to a PHP web app.
What happens is:
- log in to RPC
- send relevant queries
- wait for responses
Now, all my host gives me is the ability to run PHP and MySQL - So, if I were to put this code in a PHP page, that would become very slow and unresponsive.
It's not a huge problem as it will be people I know using it, but as a design exercise - How should I help mitigate this?
Should I put the RPC calls on the client side, and then just send the data to PHP?
