What technology to use
LAMP, linux, windows? Jsp?

 7:36 am on Nov 22, 2010 (gmt 0)


I was wondering what other people do to develop websites here.
Do most people use LAMP? or do they do their php development in windows? Whatw about java web development? Do you do it in linux or windows?

It's just a poll really. I want to see what others are doing in the web world. Also do you use microsoft technology, asp.net etc?

It all depends on the complexity of the site and the underlying business requirement.

Do most people use LAMP?

I think so, for live sites and production. The differences between WAMP and LAMP are minimal, in most cases you wouldnt notice a difference.

I use LAPP

Linux, Apache, Postgres, Python

On occasion I use the other LAMP

Linux, Apache, MySql, Python

My preference is LAPP.

Windows Vs Linux... for webservers I find that Linux is more reliable as far as uptime goes. Windows introduces a lot of bloat when it comes to acting as a webserver and can be slower under high load as a result........HOWEVER, IF you have a really good server admin then you and your audience may not even notice a difference between 'doz and 'nix other than the tools you can use for development.

So when would someone use the java solution?
I see some sites and they have .jsp in the url, so I know they are used.
Also, can you develop on WAMP and delploy on linux server? I would say the answer is yes, but I'm just throwing this question out there in case there are some little gotchyas.

WAMP and delploy on linux server?

Yes, as said there is little difference. I'm sure many developers use windows but end up using linux servers for their live sites.

There are some nuances, but in the main there is little difference.

Regarding WAMP & LAMP comparison, a quick google search shows that there are a few threads maybe worth reading to get an idea of the differences in that aspect. Here's one useful page, [stackoverflow.com...]

Personally, I use LAMP for development and online, but used WAMP for development for years.
