Help to chose java or PHP
I know you have seen this question or somewhat of it many of times.
But I really need your help to decided.
I'm new to programming and stick in the middle of java and php.
Everything I have found relating to such questions which is best to learn, the same answer arises.
"Depends what you want to do... each has it's strength and weakness and it all comes down to what you want to do with the language, as one will be better then the other"
or something on those lines.
My questions is without starting a vs war, is what do they do better then each other. or even what do they do the other doesn't.
I want to create websites, and possible app's to support those sites. I know java would be suited for the later, but some say java is only used for large web applications. so why can't it be suited for small projects?
Anyway I hope you guy's understand what I'm trying to ask.
