How to decide on the technology to use for a project?

1 New Member
Hi All,

Suppose I have a .Net team, a java team, C++ team and so on..

How to arrive at the technology to be used to develop a particular project?

It would be great if anybody can throw light on this.

Thank you,
Aizek

The technology depends on the type of project.

that's right and it often depends even on the environment where it could/should be integrated into ... most projects are not only 'stand alone' ones ... for example you develop something for an external customer it might be that you will get a requirement regarding the technology because the customer wants to maintain it in the future for himself or extend it with his own developers who currently develop another project using a specific technology already, or he has a running system that should work together with you new application/service or whatever ... there are just rules of thumb for what is not appropriate to use in specific projects but often you don't have something that could be called the best in any case - just something like the best for one case because of all the surrounding things that should be taken into consideration for a final decision ...

kind regards

In addition to what they have said depending on the project ,if project is Web based recommnedation will be Java as it contains powerful features for Web application or ASP.Net with Java or C# but if the project is Windows based when i said windows based i mean like application for finance or billing within the organization recommendation will be C++ or VB.Net .

Kind Regard

If your choices are C++, Java and .NET then I'd suggest Java just in case you need that software to run on something else other than Windows.

You should also take the time frame into account, a good C++ app generally takes longer to develop (in my experience) than an .NET application. this is because C++ offers more control and requires more things to be done manually where .NET does alot of stuff for you (not always in the best way, but usually good enough).

As I know C++, and basic of core java. I decided to learn java for my project.
One more thing, i have no idea how to fetch data from any website to show on my application.... ?? is it legal??? probably i will come to know later while learning java :)

Also what i have to read in java? only core or advance. i have developed some small app using swings. any other suggestion will be highly appreciated.
any tutorials ??????

Thanks

My piece of advice. Don’t hijack someone’s thread. You might think you have a similar question, in which case, when you start a new thread, link to a relevant thread

Hello, I have been tasked with comming up with a good solution to a problem. I will be using Visual Studio.net (either 1.1 or 2.0 framework, not sure yet - this project wont be done till well after 2.0 is available so using the beta is fine with me). The project will use SmartClient (Winform) technology, and will use remoting to run business logic on a remote server. So far so good. Now the problem to solve.
