Quickstart (Cake)PHP + reconstructing biking tracks by GPX

Is it possible to implement map matching in a PHP-based application, since GraphHopper is Java-based?
Based on this link I assume it is fortunately: https://github.com/graphhopper/directions-api/issues/11
However, this says nothing about the installation before these lines will function.

What are the minimum requirements to get this started on Windows? I have issues with the very basic installation of Map Matching, but this might be due not having any Java projects.

Thanks for any clues that get me started!

PS I found https://github.com/whizsid/OutOfWay this for map matching with PHP, but based on the looks it seems not to be based on OSM.
