I think that choosing one over the other based on just this would be the wrong thing to do. I'd prefer to say: which suites you better? Personally I like Java and application servers have some handy features built in for managing authentication and sessions, but PHP has a range of useful tools too.
With a little knowledge, a cast iron skillet is non-stick and lasts a lifetime.
