Moved to Web Development.

PHP would be easier. JSP and Java EE are for enterprise-grade applications and is significantly more complex than PHP. I wouldn't suggest using Java EE unless you really know what you are doing.

I agree. Both can do the job, but unless it's a sizable application you are building, I would recommend PHP.

PHP for sure and stick with the website and the PHP form for any support or recommendations. There are a few experts/mods in that area such as codeprada and Dormilich that are very active and know their stuff.

I think it completely depends upon your knowledge, resources, time and support.

If you have a good idea in Java related technologies then you can choose the jsp.

But if you are you dont have any idea of Java technologies and you want to accomplish your task in quick time definetely PHP is very good option to accomplish this in good and handsome time.

I have been using Java since my tenth grade and i have a pretty good knowledge about it but i feel JSP is complex and time consuming as compared to PHP.I have to finish my work in a month.So,do you say PHP is the way to go?

Just because something is more difficult does not mean it should be avoided. That being said I still prefer php, but that point had to be made.

Deploying JavaEE apps is quite a challenge and really has nothing to do with knowing how to program Java. However, being able to use Java objects, particularly if you already have some that meet the need, generally offsets the pain. Within that environment, I'm not that fond of JSP in particular. The JavaBean and other paradigms pushed for them are far too complex for what they are.

My first stop would be PHP. Unless there's something it can't do for you, then there's simply no reason not to use it. For common web tasks, nothing will get you up an running faster. It's also pretty much universally supported by ISPs.
