Re: [ossig] JSP v PHP for Biz Intelligence Application



actually with eclipse, netbeans, jboss, etc it is not that difficult for
developing 'database driven' websites. jboss bpm on eclipse is a pretty
cool tool for workflows. but i have over the years developed some
mistrust of 'wizards'.

personally, i like drupal which is on php. building modules for it is so
easy. wished php had better market perception.
