Hi all

I am currently analysing options for developing a web-based program. I was
wondering what to use on the client's web browser. The program will require
a lot of data entry and validation, preferably on the client side. I could
use HTML and script, but I was wondering whether a Java aplet would be
better? I have heard reports that it is slow (slower), or doesn't run well
unless a certain VM is used.... Are these true? Would anybody like to share
some thoughts, experiences? If I was to use HTML, the web browser would
connect to the web server which would use ASP/PHP to instantiate COM/CORBA
components that interact with the database.

Thanks for thoughts, ideas, etc
