At work we need to set up a webb app for uploading pdf documents, user should add meta data to the posts, later to be searchable by the meta data.
More than 10000 pdfs per year and keeping 5 years of history/archiving.

I prefer java before php and now wonder what framework, database do you suggest? OpenCms, StripesFramework, MySql, ...

that all depend on you which database you want . Oracle will also do that but is costlier than MySql . So My sql will be good.

We are two developers in the web department .
I am a java programmer and my college aims for php.
He argues that php is a better over all choice for us due to all plugins out there,
but he has almost no experience in programming php.

Our needs are to make it possible for our customers in a new web app to
- upload pdf documents
- submit meta data
- other users will login and read the pdf and metadata and then validate them

The web app will have to
- connect and use a database
- create a web service call (to an external ERP system) if the article numbers etc, are valid
- send relay smtp mail if errors exist
- move pdf files on an file server from one path to another

As I see it we need to make a choice between
- OpenCMS with customization, Apache, MySql
- Java, Stripes Framework, MySql, Tomcat (tailor-made from scratch with html/jsp templates)
- Php, plugins, Apache, MySql

Feel free to add more choices if needed

Cheers,
G

You must develop in whatever you are experienced with as there is nothing that can be done only in php or only with java. Java hosting is a bit costlier than php's .
