For my Capstone Project at school I am creating a web page to reserve tennis courts online. I'm trying to decide what to used as a go between from the database to the web page. From what I understand about JSP, it would be optimal for creating dynamic content inside of a web page. I also understand it's quite complicated and somewhat larger scale than I really need to be for a school project.
I'd like to complete the project in the next two weeks and I don't know PHP but I do know some Perl.
Two weeks is a rather aggressive schedule for any new technology.
That's how long it took me to learn enough Java to pass the SCJP6
Another possibility is to do everything via Ajax from HTML pages
Also, if this is the way to go, could you give me some links to good info about EL and JSTL?
