I have a SQL database that I wrote a front end for in C#/Silverlight with the help of a friend. Now I want to port it over to Java; however, I have run into a couple of problems with this.
  • No webhosting for Java with my current providor and any I look at want to charge for running java apps
  • Not really sure whether it would be better to use PHP instead
  • Lack of knowledge on my part with Java and Database connectivity.


  • Any suggestions on where to start looking at solutions for this?

    For databases connectivity try the MySQL manual which you can find on the MySQL website and the Java Tutorials.

    I shall move this discussion to our databases forum, though it might be moved again.

    John,
    OpenShift offers free hosting for Java applications with a MySql database.
