    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.

    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

    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.

    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.

      Actually You can build robust OOP with PHP if you know how. It's not hard at all just takes more time imho.

    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.

      I second that. Rails has made such an incredible development in the last years, it's lightyears ahead of any other framework I have used.
      Because Rails is so powerful, it has also quite a steep learning curve, but there is a crazy active and friendly community out there and it's almost hard to find problems that haven't yet been solved by somebody else.

          I hear a lot of good stuff about Django (and I love it's tagline "The web framework for perfectionists with deadlines" ). I have actually tried it but I admit it was a while (2+ years) ago.

          Yeah well, I guess every programmer will tell you the tools HE uses are the best, just because he's so immersed in them that he fails to see how something else might be awesome as well.

          I will put Django on my weekend play-around list. Thanks for the reminder!

            Just realized this is a thread titled "which is best PHP or Java ?"...

            Quick answer: "best" if none of them, PHP has been great in former times but has been lept over by programming languages like Python and Ruby that actually encourage you to write great code (PHP encourages you to write bad code. It's a fact.)
            I'd suggest you try one of those two named languages if you want to get into high level programming (startups, web apps) these days. If you want to become a "real" programmer (big company, big systems), I guess C++ and Java are still the way to go...?

      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 think both are important for developer but there are some difference between them which are mentioned you can say java is best.
      php is open source you can use php without license
      java which is developed by sun micro system so you need to valid license for doing work.
      java can provide better Tech support for software development.
      java can give the more security than php
      java coding is more complicated than php
      php is best for small project
      java is best for large project
      you need java virtual machine platform for working in java
      you can easily download dreamweaver for php development
      mostly mobile phones use java applications for security purpose
      we can give more authentication by java such as games, software etc

    PHP runs on your webserver, orgainzes and then gives a reply back to the client with info.
    While in java, anything takes place on the client's pc so you need to know what you want to do with it so you can decide what's best for you.

    I would go fit php, if you want a quick start to a web site, start off with a platform like Wordpress or Joomla! and develop your own plugins, that way you get all the common web requirements like logging in for free.

    Both languages serve their purposes. If a programmer is proficient in both languages, then PHP is almost always quicker to prototype with. First and biggest difference, you don't have a notion of application in PHP. Each page is a script, executed in its own memory environnement. That means PHP is great for dynamic web site, whereas server Java is for server-centric applications, which is a different class of problem.

      I use both of them. For me java is good for big application or for corporate
      that have many important transactions, because java provide many API for
      security, but java also need big resources.

      php is very good if you just want develop personal websites or small-mid
      websites, because it doesn't have big resources and you can quickly develop
      your application/website.

      If you're new to programming, definitely PHP. Most shared hosting accounts support PHP. Java is great, but is much more complicated for someone new to development to learn. You'll also need to make sure that your hosting provider supports it. Java requires an app server like Tomcat to be running on the web server in order to deploy your java apps.

    it is quite an open ended question to reply but here's my 2cent ;-)

    For some PHP might be better since it is more rapid - you open up an editor place some statements, put them on a web server and you start seeing results.

    Whilst PHP is very very powerful and there are millions of websites running on PHP, Java is more robust, more salable and there are more projects that you can use to enhance and build your projects with.

    But as has been said - it really depends on your capabilities, skills and what you want to achieve :-)


    I have worked with both: for small project I will opt for PHP. For larger projects I will go for Java

    @wondershar - Good point - if in business a language is preferred more than an other then it is considered to be better. But rest assured that in some areas Java is considered a standard

        I see a lot of these type of questions on here and it puzzles me greatly.

        However, like everyone else has said it would all depend on what you are wanting to achieve. If it's a dynamic website then I would say go with PHP, however if it is a local based application then Java is the better out of the two. Although not the overall best for desktop applications, but that is another question entirely and one I am sure will appear on here eventually.

    Without a shadow of a doubt, Java.

    You also need to think about long-term security and earning potential. Everybody knows PHP, the market is saturated with PHP developers. Java is more enterprise and Java based positions generally pay more. If you went into employment, almost all large companies are looking for Java developers.

    Take a look at Ruby and Python as well.

    You can't compare PHP & Java because PHPO is server-side and JAVA client-side.

    You can use these 2 language in combination. There is very powerful.

      I think PHP is better for small and medium web projects. PHP is born for web while Java was invented for application programming, then the Java developers added support for web but it is cumbersome and I hate it.
      If you have a big project, Java could be better in performance because Java Enterprise is more scalable then PHP.

    It depends on what you actually want to do with your language. If you want to create awesome, secure, server run applications then PHP is the name of the game. If you want dynamic, user-oriented, and potentially malleable products then Javascript is the way to go.

    What is important to note, in either case, is that neither of them are really important anymore. What is truly important is your syntax for HTML5 to insure that you run equally well for both mobile and desktop based products. A well designed HTML5 website can now run just like a native app on most mobile systems, as well as many desktop browsers (IE, Chrome, and Firefox all have extensible HTML5 native-support).

    But to truly have a secure and dynamic HTML5 website, you are going to need PHP, Javascript, as well as the basic HTML5 and CSS3 knowledge needed to put together a proper application.

    But if someone ask me to compare all aspects then I must say JAVA is the good ..becusae statistics shows JAVA has worls class application which PHP probably doesn’t have..but every man has own choice but if you like to learn then must start with PHP because JAVA is advance than PHP.
