If someone can clarrify the following it will be of great help to me as one of my colleague is disputing that JSP + JAVA SCRIPT + HTML + XML will not work for commercial / corporate development. I want to develop the Internet based solution for the administration and accounting software of multinational company, which is having operation all over the world. Targeted users of the software are corporate employees only. I can say not more than 500 users maximum. Communication between users and Database server is through the Internet / Private network.
If i want to develop this type of application can i go in for JSP + JAVA SCRIPT + HTML + XML technology. Will it work? (or) Should i opt for Applet + Servlet combination (or) Is there anything else (Java based) I would like to know which of the above technology I can use considering the following constraints. 1)Client side validation is enormous. After entering each field, a validation has to occur. 2)User-friendly screen has to available. For e.g. incremental combo box. Multiple columns combo box. 3)Application has to be multilingual. 4)The amount, which has been spent initially in coding, has to be in the form reusable. 5)Easy debugging. 6)I would like to know, is there any performance degradation, if we use applets to communicate with database over Internet. 7)If applets is not your recommendation, please explain why?
