It would really depend on what purpose you are using the languages for. But if you are focusing on web development then hands down I would recommend PHP. Also if you are new to programming then you may find that PHP is easier to grasp and there are also more resources available online than Java.

Still, both are powerful languages with great performance.

Depends on what you are wanting to do there is a lot less learning curve with PHP, but all the concepts are the same.

Think of yourself as a carpenter you wouldnt use a screwdriver to hammer a nail you would use whatever tool it makes it easier to do get that nail in.

There is no "Best" because they are different beasts . PHP is a server side script while JavaScript (aka LiveScript) is a client side script .

PHP is for web based application. Java is for desktop application.

But Java can be convert to web based using JSP+servlet. I think the best is PHP for web based because PHP is commonly use by people around the world. Java is also good, but for the high level transactions, you must use Java for the server.

The answer to this question is - it depends.

PHP is great for web development and quick scripts. It has plenty of available open source code (including my beloved WordPress) and is easy to learn. For more advanced programming it supports object orientated frameworks such as CakePHP and CodeIgniter. It performs well and hosting is cheap and plentiful.

Java is a much more verbose language, is slower for development and the tools are generally more complex. The hosting is also more expensive. However, there are some frameworks and languages that use the JVM (Java virtual machine) such as Clojure and Scala that are very trendy at the moment with some developers.

I would say that if you are going for self employed type contracts for small businesses PHP is what I would learn. Java is for more corporate work. Both perform very well in their native environments

Default Re: which is best PHP or Java ?

If your question is really just about performance, then the answer is Java, which performs about 400 times faster than PHP in many cases. In a database driven website, the weakest link performance wise is the database itself, so the choice of programming language does not matter a bit when it comes to performance.

If you are performing operations that are computationally expensive, it would be foolish to use PHP, but for most normal cases, it is fine.

By computationally expensive, I mean, for example, a tree searching operation, which is the computation of a "tree" of unknown, or infinite size. Such operations will use 100% of your processor if you allow them to. An example of this would be searching an unindexed filesystem for specified values, or finding possible outcomes on a chess board. Java is good for this, even better would be a compiled language like C++ or C.

Most Java developers think that PHP is very basic, unprofessional language that can be messy, lacks structure, doesn’t have a good IDE (integrated development environment) like Eclipse or RSA, and isn’t a good platform for a real website. On the Contrary PHP developers says that Java is overly complex and cumbersome, and that it isn’t a good platform because development time is just too slow and tedious.

Default Re: which is best PHP or Java ?

There is no real absolute answer to your question unfortunately, because both languages have their pro's and cons.

I use both; php for smaller projects and java for more complex or "critical" projects, generally. It is easier/faster to code in php. It just seems a bit more "amateurish" than java, and doesn't allow for robust OO coding, tier separation, and other buzz words. (I'm sure some will argue otherwise)

One benefit of php is that it is (ironically) more portable than java, since it's an interpreted language and nearly all hosts support it. To support java, you need a JVM running and that adds extra complexity that many hosts don't want to bother with, unless you'vee got a dedicated package or some other setup that provides the JVM. Since php code is interpreted each time it loads it will never perform as well as java or allow you to catch errors at compile time (there is no compile time), although there are various optimizing and caching mechanisms to help with performance.

both are better.it depends on what are you trying to do.Php is being mostly used today because of its non procedural nature.it is useful for small websites and web applications.where Java is useful for large,complex applications and for mobile development.

PHP is normally used for short term projects because the coding style is a bit crude and hard to maintain since you have to repeat codes over and over again.

Java can be used for bigger projects because you can use frameworks like Spring & Hibernate or Groovy & Grails to make code repetition lesser and to make it easier to maintain the project in case you need to revise it in the future (or if there are scope creeps)

Languages are simply tools that you can use to solve problems. As all things under the sun they each have their strengths and weaknesses. Java is an all purpose language that is massively popular in the corp world. You can make most anything with it.

PHP is a language built for the web.

So, if you're thinking about building desktop apps, then Java is the way to go. Internet stuff, PHP all the way. But really, it comes down to personal preference in the end.

If you are aiming to make software or web apps or combined web app that is a software then i think you should go for java,you can also do peer to peer programming in java.
If you simply want to make a website or a simple web app than go for php.
Php is easy to learn,and you can see great examples of web apps and websites made in php like facebook.
One more thing finding good shred hosting for java is difficult than finding good shared host for php.

Java would definitely not be the language but yes JSP can be an option but still I would go with PHP as I know to an extent PHP but not JSP.Java and PHP have very different uses to achieve optimum efficiency and what one is good for the other may not be.

Comparing Java to Javascript is like comparing apples to butternut squash. Java is a byte-compiled statically typed language with C-like syntax and OO features. Javascript is generally only used for client side scripting in web browsers and is a duck-typed, dynamic, prototypal scripting language.

I vote for Python - but learn both.
Since PHP is very straight forward and the learning curve is a little steep for Java, you may get frustrated and stop working with Java. Then as you learn more about programming and PHP, you'll pick up the java book again and have a better chance at learning it. Good Luck
