I am afraid nobody can suggest which language to use without knowing what sort of thing you are planning. You will get no better suggestions than you will by looking up "three layer architecture" on Google or in a book.
Not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question but here i go !!
A friend of mine and I are thinking of developing a new application and we are still debating on which language, tools, software to use. Both of us have pretty good experience in Java/J2ee/Hibernate/JPA/Struts/JSF. I don't really want to discuss the application idea here , it has features of myspace,facebook, uploading pictures, user forums, calendar etc etc. I would like to hear suggestions, opinions from fellow ranchers regarding this. What you think is the best framework, language to use ? I want to incorporate lots of Ajax in the app and there wont be many people involved in the development; maybe 2 developers and another friend of us who will help us in GUI.
Looking forward to hear from all of you !! Thanks,

Rajeev, I agree with the above posters that there just isn't enough information to pick a framework. And it's not just what you are doing. Other factors, like how many users you expect, play a factor too.
Regardless of what language you use, you'll want to select an AJAX library as well. That's just too involved to want to write by hand.
Thanks for the reply ranchers !! i would love to have a million users, the application i am planning is somewhat similar to facebook/myspace but the concept is different. maybe i wll come back another day with more info thanks again for you replies..
