Project Mgt App using PHP or Java

Threaded View

I am starting to develop a project management app.  This will be an
internal app I use to manage projects.

There will be projects that have tasks, and maybe tasks that have
subtasks.  I will need to keep track of notes and people assigned to
tasks.  I would then like to be able to generate reports in a PDF
document to email to people that are responsible (all notes on a
project, updated notes on a project, all notes on all projects,
updated notes on all projects, all notes for a project assigned to a
person, updated notes for a project assigned to a person, etc.).

I do not want to download anything existing.... I would like to do it
myself from scratch.

My dilemma is that I am trying to decide whether I want to do a web
based system in PHP or if I want to use Java and Swing.

I have reasons for both (pros and cons) but I was hoping to get
feedback on what other people feel the better approach would be.
Sorry for the double post but I am posting this in both the PHP board
and the Java Board to get ideas from both sides.

Thanks very much for taking the time to respond.

In my opinion you should program in the language you feel most comfortable
with, which would normally lead to the best result.

However, take into account who is going to be your target audience. Do you
want others to help coding ? If you know what you are doing and for whom, it
could simplify your choice.

For example, if I had to do it, I would use PHP, because I can rely on my
friends should I need help. If I'd choose Java, I would not have that

If you ask in a PHP group, expect to get PHP for an answer.  Conversely,  
if you ask in g Java group, expect to get Java for an answer.

It's something only you can decide.
