I am working on a startup company, and this is a decision we are trying to solve.
Java webservice or php webservice ?
We are using Amazon EC2. Webservice is to be hosted in the amazon cloud. Scalability and performance is going to be key in our application.
Now, the question is what is the best approach for webservice development. I got opinion for Php and to use CakePhp or CodeIgnitor Php. Then, someone else mentioned to me about Ruby On Rails.
Also, there is opinion that java is better in terms of scalability and stability, and will help in long run than using php for webservice.
While scalability is important, we also want to consider the fact that we are a startup and have to get the product at the earliest.
I know this is going to trigger a discussion. More than links, I would appreciate if you can give me some solid points on which language to choose, and pros/cons for them, and if you can give me some use case on how you dealt this with situation of choosing the right webservice.
I am in charge to make the decision. Please give me some insights on this, so I can make the best decision on this.
