Question about making Interactive Messageboard in java

Posted 23 February 2011 - 02:19 AM

Hello all,

As a project i'm trying to make an interactive messageboard application.

I have made projects in Java before, so my prefference goes to Java again.

However, i don't know if this is the best choice.

So my question is: Is Java on a windows platform the best language for an interactive messageboard that has to do the following things.

- Broadcast global news: Events, news, Achievements and successes, sollicitations
- Switch from broadcasting global stuff to a login screen
- After login show personal news, events, help questions, video's, twitter shoutbox

So the application is going to have a global part and a personal part after a login.

Is Java up for these things?

Thanks,

Zylox

I am assuming you are going to have a server which the client queries ? If you wish to interact from a desktop to a server then java should be fine for what you are doing.

Yep you could use Java but if it's specifically a Windows application, I would have a look at using C# since it will offer you more functionalities in terms of windows development.
