hi guys,

I am doing a small website project (creatign a java tutorial site). Rather than creating a site with static HTML i want to include registration and forums to my site(in a nutshell make it more dynamic)...The only problem is to use whether JSP and Servlets for my site or use PHP....

I know if a choose the former i have to study jsf also...

I cannot decide between the two....... Please help me

PS:i hope i have created the thread in the correct area

Nope, you can do it with plain servlets and JSPs, or you can use some other framework like Struts, Wicket, etc.

For "small website projects" Java/servlets is an overkill, PHP is more appropriate and it doesn't need a dedicated server or VPS unless your site becomes *really* popular...

No. JSF is entirely optional for servlet/JSP-based sites. In fact, many people shy away from JSF in favor of other (or no) frameworks.

I am sorry. I didnot explain correctly...

this is not a short term project.. (My plan is to make this site my living)

In the beginning it will contain only tutorials but as i go on i want to include forums and others

I am thinking of adding google adsense also to my site.............

if i use jsp and servlets will i be able to use flux also..................

PS:You will become really angry at this ... I am jsut going to start my website(under mental construction actually)

but i want it to become a really good site for java tutorial:

Is this what you mean by "will I be able to use flux?" ? It calls itself embeddable, so I'd assume that it can be used in all kinds of Java environments, including web apps.

Flash doesn't care what server side technology you use.
