I'm new to web development. A month ago I developed a small web application using Firebird as a database, PHP to connect to the database and Bootstrap, Jquery and Datatables to show the data.
Now we are going to start a bigger project in which we need to develop user control, environment configuration, datagrids, CRUD, reports, importing data from Excel ... attachments, statistics ..., it would be a standard application that we think to have hosted on an own server and "sell" to potential customers.
What is certain is that we will continue with the Firebird database but we are evaluating what technologies to use and I have several doubts:
1.-RAD or Framework?
2.-Is it convenient to use MVC in this type of project?
3.-PDO or JSON to connect with the data? What is safer? And faster?
I have been investigating this for weeks and now I have more doubts than when I started, there are many possibilities and many utilities, I would appreciate any type of contribution based on your experience.
Thank you very very much.
