Hey All!

I am starting up a project to get a open web service repository. The application will be data for growing plants, via an XML schema I will create. I have worked web apps in the past, both backends and frontends, but never did the whole thing. I am new to javascript, PHP and MySQL, and I need some advice on how best to go about this. Should I just use HTML 5 and javascript with a MySQL backend database, or PHP and MySQL? Also, would anyone be able to direct me to a good tutorial that might help me out? I have found a couple online, but are there any must-do howtos for this stuff?

Sorry if these questions are kind of vague, this is really just a big learning process for me.

Thanks,
Patrick

Well, most of the applications would use at least one tier between the front end and the backend for many reasons like maintainability, scalability etc...

Approach you are going to take mostly depends on what kind of logic you are going to implement and how you are going to handle multiple users etc...

First you might want to look at various development methods/patterns etc... and get started with a simple application and build upon that.

Some faqs (WebServicesFaq, OO Patterns FAQ) you might want to have a look at first.
 
I agree. Here's the link: http://aspose.com/file-tools
