I have to present some technical data/facts to my team regarding the
migration of a PHP project to Java /J2EE .My focus will be explaning
them the longer time duration that will be taken by the Java
developers as compare to duration spent on PHP .Do anyone have any
idea on this ?
I need some facts/technical data of past that can help me to show
If you do not have data, how come you are already making a statement
like "doing X will take longer in Java". Looks like you have already
made up your mind and are looking for data to support your point of view.
Whether implementing something in Java will take longer or not will
depend on the project features, non-functional requirements, team skill
set etc. And what kind of business pays for just moving an
existing,working, application over to a totally new technology? Or is
you PHP application more like a throw-away prototype?
While you look for data, I will also suggest that you write down
different functional and non-functional requirements of the project
including things like failover, load balancing , availability of mature
libraries and frameworks for doing things that are important for your
application, availability of engineers etc. Then look at each one of
these and try to evaluate the two technologies. If you are not familiar
with Java, I would suggest you actually try out each of the technology
options provided by Java (and in PHP also if you have not tried the PHP
option). It might be a lot of work but an exercise like this is an
important component of the decision making process.
Two weeks to five years.
But then if it was developed over 5-6 years with no plan, chances are by
now it's a huge mess, and could use rewriting anyway. Most projects
developed this way are - in any language.
