    If you want to develop some nice web apps, would you go for PHP or java Web Services?

    php is much easier and cheaper to deploy and java can get real complicated.

    but i feel that if i want to be on the track long term, java might be a viable option.

    what do you guys think?

    Stay away of Java for, well, just about anything.

    For web services, you might want to consider Python+Django, Ruby+Rails and PHP+Zend Framework or Symfony. In all cases, I would recommend you look into the CGI configuration, it will save quite a bit of CPU and load time if you have a big site.

    I have to disagree with PHP and say C# all the way.. or java :)

    If you are able to build a multithreaded Async C# Socket server implementing HTTP via a high performance and decent MySql design, it will blow PHP out of the water.... dont know about Java sorry WebSecrets.

    I am working in one at the moment, will take me another year to implement!! but windows has been heaven for me. and I will revist this thread with a beta invite....


    erm..
