    Default Which languge do i have to choose to develop a social netwking site ?

    Hello friend's
    I have to develop a social networking site.I have 2 month to make it live.
    I am not able to decide which language do i have to choose php or java.
    Actually i am good in java but the requirement of the project is to load faster.
    Till now i haven't found any social networking site developed in java.Even Facebook is developed using php.
    .
    So help me friend.

    If you have two months to make it live, go with php, unless you have lots of experience and can develop an application quickly in java.

    And this sways your decision how?

    You should sit down and figure out your requirements, as this is a decision that we cannot make for you. Php is installed by default on many servers....do you have access to a server which runs java? Do you have any php experience, and if not are you a quick learner? What is your client...and/or do you want more than a single client for your application - for example desktop applications, webstart applications, etc...(java would avoid code duplications for the clients(s) and server(s))? Are there libraries in java that do not have a corresponding library in php (or vice-versa) that you may need? Both java and php are great languages.

    I personally default to php for web pages/scripting...but if I needed to write a full blown enterprise application that consists of things like Desktop applications, Server applications, webpages, REST systems, etc...php would slowly fall off my radar. My .02

    @copeg i am a 4th year student i have developed no of web,standalone and mobile apps as my friend's project.But didn't have much experience of host them on online server.
    Some days a go i hosted my project(a technical forum developed on struts framework) for demo(server provide 11 day hosting for free) but it works little slower(realy i worked very hard to make it speedy but still it is slower).I think i need some tutorial to optimize the java codes.If you have please give the link.

    Look i created the connection width database for every event that occur on my interface.Is there any way by which once the connection is created we can pass all the sql queries and do not need to create connection until user close the tab.
    .
    Well i don't have much time with php(frankly i dont like php).

    Without knowing why 'its slow', one should NEVER jump to the conclusion that it would work faster if implemented in a different language. Is the database indexed properly? Do you have connection pools? Do you cache information that is frequently used? Is your database on the localhost? Do you optimize your SQL queries? Do you only pull the necessary information (as opposed to SELECT *)? These are all things unrelated to java and could slow you down whether you use java, php, ruby, perl, or what have you.

    Thanks copeg for your useful suggestion.
    I have no idea about the optimization.Now i am going to start reading the stuffs what you have told.
    If you have some good link where i found these things explained easily please provide me.
    .
    Isn't there any way to get some experience in optimization ?
    I mean open source project development or any prototyping model provide by oracle to explain it properly.
