There's no best development tool. There's best practices for developing secure web applications, but the development tool is relevant only insomuch as what development environment is chosen and what works best for the developers.

OWASP should be the place to start learning both about what threats you will be facing and what best practices should be used to avoid vulnerabilities.

The OWASP Enterprise Security API is a good project to follow and you'll see it is available in a multitude of web development languages. http://www.owasp.org/index.php/Category:OWASP_Enterprise_Security_API

Once you've decided on a development environment, then you can pick your development tools.

You'll also need to find an SAS 70 and/or ISO 17799 certified ISP who will prove they are compliant for auditing purposes, (and to prove they are not going to be your weak point in security.)

Many people read the question and could have said "I like this development environment" or "Java EE is the way to go."  I don't think you got those responses because your question begged the answer given.

What do you tell someone who says I'm going to build a house which has windows and a fireplace. What is the best tool to use?
