    That's up to you! If you know Java as your alias suggests then why not use JSP? It depends on what languages you know/like, what platform you are on (what tools are available to you), and whether you need to integrate with any other systems (and what platforms those are - J2EE, COM/.NET, etc).

    freakysid,

    yes, you are right! i am definitely a Java nerd, but have never really done much with JSP. Do you have a tutorial link and also a link on how to get it working on my webserver?

    How does JSP compare in terms of speed and reliability to perl, php and mySQL, etc?

    Also, which would be the easiest for me to use?

    The only web scripting language I've used is PHP - so I can't give you comparisons. However, I must say that having previously experienced C++, Java and VB before dabbling in PHP, at first I was freaked out by loose typeing. However, that's the beauty of interpreted languages such as Perl and PHP. It sure makes scripting a lot easier to not have to bother with data types. The other thing I like about PHP is being able to drop in and out of PHP; that is switch between parsed PHP code and raw html from within the one file.

    Since you offer Java help, Java should be your obvious choice.

    But since you asked about PERL and PHP, I agree with Sid about PHP's advantages.

    Plus, coding time is greatly reduced using PHP. One or two lines of PHP can require 10-12 lines of PERL.

    I have written dynamic sites using both. Once I learned PHP, I never went back to Perl.
