php is right tool for job?

P: n/a
Hi,

I've been playing with php5 with Smarty templates and mySQL4 and PEAR
DB for e-commerce. This combination seems to work very well but I was
wondering what other other combination of programming tools would be
good. JSP, ASP, C#? I don't know about those languages or how they
compare to php. Any thoughts?

Thanks,
Peter

If you're doing it for yourself, and not for job advancement or such, then I
would say stick with PHP. IMO, it's easier than the rest - certainly it's
easier to get a site up & running in PHP. Besides, with the others, you
limit yourself to Windows servers... :(

I've done stuff like that in VB.NET. Given a choice I still do PHP, FWIW

I was thinking j# - not jsp. Never heard of being able to run c# on a linux
machine before. C++, yes, c# no. Certainly not if it's .NET

Tony,

C# and J# are Microsoft abominations which other platforms have not
(thankfully) implemented.

I'd much rather do something like PHP which is platform independent than
be beholden for the rest of my life to any single company - be it
Microsoft, Red Hat, IBM or whatever.
