What language do you want to use? There's no "one right language for banking applications". As you have posted this in a forum dedicated to Java servlets I assume that your primary choice would be Java?

Likewise, any reputable database can be used. Are there any you are already familiar with? MySQL and PostgreSQL are popular open-source choices.

Thanks for your reply sir! Well you guessed it right! I refered few articles and found that I can use JSP - Servlet as font end and can use Oracle 12c as backend and am familiar with java technology. I have professional level knowledge in java but not expert. I will need help in developing this application. I'm little worried about the security measure in java web app. I know there must not be major issue but are there any articles which I should refer before starting to develop application.? Please help

What security issues are you concerned with?

Well, first of all -- is this for a real bank, or just an academic project?

Secondly, obviously for this type of app high security would be needed. Not only within the code itself, but for the HTTP transport (using SSL), operating system, and physical hardware.

If this is just a student project, then you'd really only need to be concerned with making the code secure.

I do not mean to rain on your parade, but I doubt any bank would be interested in using your software for real life applications. At the end of the day, it is real money after all.
I would suggest you find some other domain to grow your business.

It means that banking is probably more involved than you're ready to tackle. The security requirements alone will very likely be far beyond anything you have learned or experienced so far. Also, depending on what this application (or your company) would be doing, you may have to become licensed by financial authorities in your jurisdiction, or you may have to be audited according to the PCI-DSS process.

Also, many online banking websites exist. Why would yours be better? Without a differentiator, why should someone buy your product?
