    ASP, PHP or JSP?

    Hi,

    Can anyone give me some feedback on what I should use,
    between PHP, ASP, and JSP?

    Thanks,

    Fernando

    This 'may' be easier to answer if you say what it is you actually want to do??

    I have done a my web site on PHP, but I've been told that JSP is better. And I am just trying to get as much information as possible before I develop too much and find out down the road that I am going to be limited.

    Well, once again it's not really possible to answer this without knowing what the end result is to be.

    I write PHP and it's fine with me for everything I want to do but I have more knowledgable ex colleagues that tell me JSP is much better for certain applications.

    Bottom line is what is it you want to achieve?

    I suppose my question is:

    'Why do they say that JSP is better?'

    In general I want to create web sites for people that can be accessed via any device. That can access a dabasase and create objects from dll libraries.

    Also, I want to use a system that has a future.

    Thanks,

    Fernando

    Personally I'm not for JSP (steep learning curve) but as I said I have colleagues that see it as a more robust and scaleable platform.

    Take a look at these for other points of view:

    Thanks Klyve,

    Yes, I wonder why some people hate JSP and others seem to love it.

    I appreciate those links, I've added them to my favorites

    Thanks,

    Fernando

    I would think that the hate part would be down to the steep learning curve necessary.

    Certainly puts me off!

    Good luck

    Hi Klyve,

    I just thought you might be interested in an answer I got at CodingForums.com

    ---

    JSP has many very nice features however JSP tends to run rather slowly.
    You won't find JSP supported on very many shared hosting servers due to
    the amount of resources JSP uses. Typically businesses that have their
    own servers will use JSP.

    PHP can do pretty much anything that JSP can do but PHP was originally
    designed for the web where as JSP draws it's roots from a high level
    standalone software development. Java, the lanaguage used in JSP has a
    very steep learning curve.

    ASP is nice too but has a bit of a steeper learning curve than does PHP.
    The difference in speed between PHP and ASP is probably not real noticably
    different.

    Cheers, and thanks
    Fernando

    Thanks for the extra info.

    By co-incidence I spoke to a potential client regarding a usability review of their site and commented about the slow speed of the page delivery and they use JSP!

    Another top choice that you have left out is Perl. Being a general purpose language, Perl has functions to do nearly everything. It is difficult to find a Web server that does not support Perl. Its major features are that it's easy to use, supports both procedural and object-oriented (OO) programming, has powerful built-in support for text processing, and has one of the world's most impressive collections of third-party modules.

    {for(ord){$i+=$_&7;grep(vec($s,$i++,1)=1,1..($_>>3)-4);}}print"$s\n";

    Thanks for your suggestion jeffmott. I am going to take a close look at Perl.

    My only problem with ASP and ASP.NET in particular is the huge expence for Microsoft's development tools like Visual Studio, also hosting of ASP is more expensive than PHP and ASP.NET is even more expensive still.

    It's a pity that Microsoft insists on making money even out of developers. I don't mind paying but I think Microsoft's prices for their MSDN is a clear rippoff.

    On the other hand PHP, Apache and MySQL are all free for developers. And hosting is a lot cheeper.

    I myself have noticed most websites written in JSP I have visited can be sluggish and I tend to browse on T-1 so it's either their JSP or servers I believe it will be the JSP.

    Normally I'd say PHP is slightly better than ASP but it does depend upon how you want to apply the technology.
