That would be great! I was thinking about using my own website, but this sounds

Gnash is communicating only with the html page that loaded the testcase, using
javascript, doing like this: getURL('javascript:neededFunction(parameter);')
So the html page uses javascripts to collect all the testdata, and sends all
the data to a php script which analyse the data and put it into the database.
This way the actual use of the database and php should be minimized, instead of
each testcase connecting to the webserver, which could be over 1000 connections
in less than a minute. But since all the testcases must be loaded first, alot
of connections will be made anyway, so the stress on the server will be
