Hi,

Can I or is it even a good idea to get away with J2EE when
creating an e-commerce site that will involve online order,
transaction and use J2EE only when transaction becomes heavy???

Is it a good idea to avoid J2EE 1st (since they r complicated)
if the business is small, say shops with few branches,
and upgrade to J2EE latter if high transaction
is involved??

Well, J2EE expert will always stick with using J2EE from
start but I am looking for subjective answer.


Thanks

If it is a small shop there are always alternatives like lightweight shopping carts etc.

I would go with PHP, mysql server etc and concentrate more on the presentation aspect of the site(using a graphic designer).

As the site clietele and load goes-up you may have to move to a opensource J2EE container like JBoss.

Just my 2 cents.
