I have an understanding that a page to be displayed in a web application can be either JSP or PHP. This is a choice of technology that you do.

Might be a dumb question but I do not know much about PHP, so needed to check before I try to convince someone that this is not a proper thing to do.

What all other points can be considered? I do not feel this is a proper merge [if at all its possible?]

Regards,
Tina

The JSP forum is correct. Unfortunately 'Diversions' is for puzzles etc.

I'll move it back for you

PHP is another language altogether, unrelated to Java. There are actually many other alternatives besides these two: Microsoft's "Active Server Pages" (ASP), erb (embedded Ruby), and many, many more. It's certainly useful to learn about multiple alternatives, but it's probably best to wait until you've gotten some facility and understanding of one.

You could learn more about PHP here.

There was a good discussion on PHP vs JSP here. It might help you in deciding on which technology you may want to persue first.

I've moved to Java for a series of reasons some of which have been mentioned Gregg. There is one I'd like to add though. Code reusability on the desktop and mobile devices. After working years with two different code bases one in Delphi and one in php we realized we were not getting anywhere any time soon. Java allows for the same codebase with different presentation layers. Saves a lot of time developing. Add to that tools like ORM and XML and things fly.
