design a interactive Whiteboard and chat Application

  Asked By: Erica    Date: Jun 16    Category: Java    Views: 1706

Last week i posted a query that 'i am planning to design a
interactive Whiteboard and chat Application and asked your sugesstion
reg the best choices of programming areas.

I got reply from some people (thanks to them) that it could be done in

1.Mysql with PHP

2.J2EE with jsp, servelets ,applets and flash.

I am really confused with these since both the areas are entirely
different. So i kindly request yu friends
you all to give a bold sugesstion which could be the best of all and
the reason.

Beacuse the reason yu provide me should be explained to my staffs.

If you're not that familiar with the choices, I'm sure you'll find
PHP/MySQL much easier to learn and get running. On the other hand,
there is really no good way to update the client asynchronously with
that method, so the users would have to click something every now and
then to see new messages. You would get better performance and
usability from the JSP, etc, approach, and be able to update
asynchronously without reloading the page, but the learning curve for
those technologies is quite a bit higher. Probably don't really need
flash, and that's another whole learning curve.

Incidentally, there is a package called FlashChat that uses flash  on
the client end and PHP/MySQL (I think) on the server end. Works
rather well. Costs $5, but that buys you the source code, too, even
the Flash FLA file. Might be worth it if you want to see how it
works. You can see it operating on a prototype site I did at
http://clay.duane-n-lisa.net/kids/chat.php. (You have to register to
get to the chat  client, but you can put in anything you want.) I'll
try to look up the link to the author if you're interested.

bold suggestion is that use java servlet /jsp
that is being used by 90 % of the developer
