    Smile Regarding an auction site

    Hello all, I am new to java and started learning recently.
    I have a project which I have to submit by the end of this semester. I have to design an auction site like ebay with bid and buy options. There will be buyers and sellers accounts so I have to use database at the back end and I am planning to use SQL Server. But as I am new to java and right now I am learning core java, I dont know how to proceed.

    I am using 3 tire technology and would like to know how to move ahead. What should I use in front end , business layer and database layer if I have to use java technologies.

    This is quite a choice, and not necessarily an easy question to answer as there could be quite a few options on every tier.
    Client Side: Webstart, applet, stand-alone, jsp, servlet.
    Business Side: Tomcat, Jboss, EJB's, JDBC
    Data Tier: Oracle, Postgresql, mysql
    And I know I've probably forgotten quite a few other options. Combine any of these. One recommended option: jsp/jboss/mysql (why? jsp for the web tier is easier than full servlets which can be reserved for background tasks, jboss gives you the option for using jdbc and/or ejb's, and mysql because in my experience it is relatively easier to use than the alternatives).

    Can I use SQL server as the database coz my friend works on sql server. And in the middle layer I am thinking of EJB and front end JSP.

    That is one of the advantages of the 'tier' design...you could use flat files if you wanted. So, yes (by 'SQL server' I presume you mean microsoft, as all the above are technichally 'SQL servers')
