    It depends. If I were you I choose JSP, JSF, GWT and Google App Engine for the project. JSP is lot more like PHP. And there are other technologies like Spring. You must learn more. It is so easy if you know core Java.

    I never dealt with ORACLE (SQL), so I have no idea.

    I'm kind of in the process of writing something similar at the moment actually.

    We use a MySQL database and then just standard Servlet, JSP stuff for the frontend. Also using a little framework of my own which creates a nicer abstraction to the whole servlet/jsp stuff. I wouldn't personally say that Oracle is the best DB to use with Java, there are a lot of really good databases out there. You might for instance want a database that you can bundle with your app so you might go for something like H2. It all depends really.

    I guess you need to decide on a couple of things.

    - To use or not to use an MVC framework for the frontend
    - What type of backend storage to use
    - Are there any third party dependencies you rely on such as webservices etc.

    Once you've got the bigger picture figured out you can start going into things in more detail.

    Oracle comes at a price - my understanding of the basic license is that if you use it outside of a development environment you pay, and its pricey, so if you foresee your project expanding in this manner it is something to consider. JDBC is a common lower level method with databases, whichever you choose, so Oracle doesn't provide much on top. PostgreSQL, MySQL, Derby, etc...are other common databases one can use. And like Json mentioned, if you want to distribute the database with the app rather than having an app server, there are those (such as Derby) with advantages over the others
