    JAVA vs ASP


    Hello. I'm a newbee here and am hoping someone can offer advice. We're running
    a VB6/Oracle two-tier system now but want to move to a Web-based, three-tier
    system. We're not sure whether to move in the ASP/MTS direction or make
    an investment in a JAVA-based solution. We have time and money so the issues
    are really ease of development, scalability, and stability.

    Any information will be much appreciated!

    hello jeff
    since you are already in vb6/oracle I think it is best to use asp and mts
    / i am assuming you want to stay with oracle and not move to sql ..

    ease of development == > your already existing vb front end can be broken
    apart into gui and business objects quickly -- and since asp is vbscript
    - learning curve will be practicallly nil -- with java, you have a learning
    curve ==

    == > scalability == mts is meant to help your applications scale --

    == >and stability == there are several high-volume web sites that are built
    on asp technology -- you are definitely not the first one

    one thing that you need to be careful and not blindly jump into the web bandwagon
    is to make sure the web gui is good enough for the user .. sure there are
    benefits to a web gui - no installation on user machine (except IE), and
    access to the business from anywhere -- but at the same time, web gui may
    be harder to code than vb-gui and vb gui is more richer thatn web gui --
    with vb-gui you can use client-side processing using ado - with web gui you
    can do some client side processing bu have to use RDS

    you need to put a lot of thought in designing the system before you code

    hope this feedback is helpful

    regards

    Jeff,

    If scalablity is a concern, I would highly suggest Java. Not only do you
    free youself from platform dependency, but also cost in upgrades. Solaris
    is available for as little as 75.00 for up to 8 processors. Linux is well,
    free. MS 2000 server is 3500+ for a 25 client license.

    Re: JAVA vs ASP

    what's the cost of SQL Server got to do with it?

    Comparative costs of the operating system
    -------------------------------------------------------------
    W2k may cost more than Solaris, but SUNs mission is to sell expensive hardware
    not software - SUN servers are considerably more expensive than Wintel
    ones....

    Scalability
    ---------------
    load-balanced W2k Data centre machines can scale up to a level above the
    requirements of all but the largest web sites (millions of hits per hour)

    Platform dependency
    ------------------------------
    Platform independence is a myth...


    Pleas note that I am NOT one of MS's biggest supporters, but they have started
    turning out some good product in the last year, and their .NET stuff does
    appear to offer its own advantages.
