Hi,

I want to write a simple local classifieds similiar to kijiji.com.
Which language is better to use? PHP or JSP?

It's impossible to say what is better, PHP or JSP. You can do it with both.

This is like asking "What is better, a screwdriver or a hammer?" without knowing what you want to do with them...

As an additional note, it's not really a decision (or *shouldn't* be) between PHP and JSP--JSP is only one part of a JEE solution; at the *very* least you'd also want servlets.

That said, I find PHP abhorrent as a language, and it's ridiculously easy to write horrible code--but it may suit you more than it does me.

Thanks for reply.

Actually i am thinking about a function for the website. Basely is users can send email in a certain format to the mailbox, and i am going to analysis the email then transform that email to a posting.

I am not too familiar with PHP. What do you think is easier for that function ? j2ee?

Again this is just opinion: PHP has a shorter learning curve than a well-written JEE application.
