Hello,

I am originally a PHP developer and a lot of my friends recommended that I should move to JSP as it is much powerful especially when it come to large scale applications.

Although I can't find any website on the net to answer my following questions:

A. Where I can find information about PHP vs JSP?

B. Where I can find information about websites built using JSP? For example I know that Xerox.com was built using JSP and now eBay.com, but are those the only 2 websites?

So can someone please help me with my 2 questions?

Thank you for your time and efforts

Michael

Michael,
a) Why not just start with a JSP tutorial? There are going to be enough differences that you will want a foundation.

b) There are many sites written in Java. Some advertise it in the URLs (like delta.com) and others just use Java behind the scenes.

Continued from here.

Obviously, java.sun.com is a heavily trafficked site.

www.hrs.de is a huge hotel booking site.

www.opodo.com is a big European travel web site.

And so on. Look for URLs that have "servlet" in them, or ".do" - those are typical signs for Java-powered sites.

But when it comes down to it, you can't tell from the URL. Servlet URL mapping is very flexible.
