Very difficult question to answer fully within an EE question but here are a few pointers.

When choosing a development platform and programming language consider which platforms you are targeting, if it will be Windows your choice will be different than if you're targeting Linux or Mac. If you're targeting Windows then Visual Studio.Net will be a good choice. If you want to target all platforms consider Java.

In terms of programming language it's important to consider what your develoepr base is. In other words choose a development environment that's well supports and for which there are plenty of developers about.

Most development environments are database independent these days so that probably won;t be a huge factor but worth considering.

PS. Also consider whether you are going to go with Client/Server of online app architecture.

Not so complex.

Buy an as/400 iSeries and developen in any language you like
if it must be lightning-fast, use RPG and SQL communication with every system or DB is guaranteed.
the bottleneck in communication is always the speed (or beter non-speed) of the remote DB.
100% controll about all processes

And...... MTBF is very long

Save and reliabel!!!

Good luck

BTW the DB on that platform is UDB.DB2...
Also the most flexible solution.

Or you could download the open sourced ERP, Compiere, and start with that.


It used to utilize JBoss, Java, and Oracle database heavily.
