Hardly an advanced topic.

I am afraid nobody can suggest which language to use without knowing what sort of thing you are planning. You will get no better suggestions than you will by looking up "three layer architecture" on Google or in a book.

Hi,

Not sure if this is the right forum to ask this question but here i go !!

A friend of mine and I are thinking of developing a new application and we are still debating on which language, tools, software to use. Both of us have pretty good experience in Java/J2ee/Hibernate/JPA/Struts/JSF. I don't really want to discuss the application idea here , it has features of myspace,facebook, uploading pictures, user forums, calendar etc etc. I would like to hear suggestions, opinions from fellow ranchers regarding this. What you think is the best framework, language to use ? I want to incorporate lots of Ajax in the app and there wont be many people involved in the development; maybe 2 developers and another friend of us who will help us in GUI.

Looking forward to hear from all of you !! Thanks,

- Rajeev

If i were in your position i would use the following, but it may not be the best solution

1)Java/j2ee
2)Eclipse as IDE
3)Struts
4)EJB3.0
5)JPA
6)MYSQL Database as backend
7)JBOSS/glass Fish application server

How can you recommend all that stuff without knowing anything about what they're doing? He could just as well use Ruby on Rails, and have a decent prototype running in an hour.

Rajeev,
I agree with the above posters that there just isn't enough information to pick a framework. And it's not just what you are doing. Other factors, like how many users you expect, play a factor too.

Regardless of what language you use, you'll want to select an AJAX library as well. That's just too involved to want to write by hand.
