hmm, why would this mean to rewrite Pd in java or ajax?
it seems like you mean running Pd on the client, but this is explicitely 
not what the original author wanted (namely: running Pd on the server).

@adityo: it really depends on what you need. obviously, if Pd is running 
on the server, the audio will be generated on the server as well, so 
people might not hear anything (unless they happen to sit in the server 
if it is just about listening to a patch of yours, the traditional 
approach would involve running Pd on the server and streaming the audio 
to an icecast2 (or similar) streamingserver to which people can connect 
in order to hear the stream.
if you want more interactivity, you can use http/php/xmlrpc/irc/... to 
communicate with Pd (using [netreceive] or similar), so people can 
change parameters.
