A Simple Newbie Question | Which Development Language? (Robust, Extensive, Powerful, with Longevity?)
Posted on 2006-07-14
Can u help.
Have self-taught self with ColdFusion CFML for a heavily interactive web site using CF, large mySQL interaction ... with some CFAjax'd bits and pieces.
Problem: Coldfusion, I'm told ... is a slow, inflexible (cfml) language with a reduced shelf-life in light of 'Web2.0' evolution of the web.
SO - my question : if I were to start from scratch and learn a new language that offered a credible design methodology, ... flexibility and secure database (mysql) connectivity ... with ajax'd capabilities (tags?/functions addins?) ... would PHP be the route or JSP or!?
Thanks for your honest opinion and my supporting info!?
