Java servlet VS. PHP!
I really need help!:confused:
I am currently working on a static website that is written in PHP, I want to add a shopping basket type mechanism to the website, where users select the web-pages they want and the page name and reference is get inserted into a basket (from which the pages can be removed upon the user selection) and then once submitted, the information is sent to the server from there other application might get called and the given information is manipulated.
I mean does PHP have the potential to do that? And if so, then how easy is it to use PHP to do that?
And will there be any technical or integration/compatibility issue if I use Java Servlet to do that considering the fact that I am already using PHP for the website publication?
I really thank you if you could help me with this problem.
What does your PHP stuff do?
I'm guessing "static" is a misuse of the term, since PHP is intended for dynamic pages.
If you already have the storefront (if you like) in PHP, then I would argue that the rest should be PHP as well, just to ensure compatibility and reduced maintenance overhead.
I'm totally agreed with you, those bad decisions make lots of compatibility as well as deployment issues. My recommendation also to move with PHP on rest of the stuff.
