Suggestions on creating website

Hello Ceans,

can you please suggest me good front-end and back-end languages, for creating a website for a friend of mine.
I have recently created one basic website as a college project , using jsp+ mysq database. on netbeans.
The purpose is to learn more, so pleae suggest accordingly,
and also please suggest, the corresponding IDE.

Thanks in advance,
Gaurav

Gaurav,

The choice of languages entirely depends on what you're trying to build. If its a simple text-image site, you can get the job done using simple HTML & CSS.

However, if you're trying to build something web 2.0ish, you'll need , HTML, CSS, JavaScript, XML, [Perl, maybe!] and mysql database.

For the IDE - I recommend Eclipse Europa 😁 . That's my favorite.

Let me know if that answers your query.

Well, PHP should be the language of choice along with the scalable mysql database.

Could you give us an example of any site you'd want your site to look like (and similar in functionality).

You can have all the dropdown fancy using CSS. [​IMG] . Dreamweaver simplifies the whole website design process. I thought you want to do it as another college project.

Your task can be greatly simplified. I recommend using a content management system, even Wordpress is amazing! For displaying high resolution images, my favorite is the lightbox script (freely available on the Internet).

All said, dreamweaver is a commercial software and its going to dig a deep hole in your pocket. CMS or Wordpress is your best bet! 😀
