I am embarking on buiulding a web site and was wondering if someone could point me in the right direction.
The site has to perform well, has to be scallable and must be hosted on tomcat i.e. not a J2EE application server.
So far i have a presentation layer, business logic layer, integration layer and an oracle database. For the integration layer i have used Data Access Objects to communicate with the business logic layer and then hibernate communicates with the database.
My question is what technologies should i use to build the presentation layer and business logic layer so that the system scales and performs. I.e. should i use jsp and servlets, JSF, Struts, Spring.
I am very worried that JSF runs slowly and will impact the performance. I know this is a big question and can come down to preference. But i know there must be a good solution performance and scallability wise.
So what technologies are recommended for the presentation and business logic layer?
Thankyou so much for your help.
Oh and i have posted this in JSP and Spring framework aswell as i wasnt sure where it should go as its quite general.
