I and my friend are starting aur project based on java .
We are planning to create a java based forum software . But we are confused to wheather make it a app on windows communicating a DB server ...Or to make it based on serverlets/jsp etc (somthing like vbulltein / phpbb etc).
Could you suggest which Java tech(hope i am using the right term) would be useful in achieving our aim.
we both have just started JAVA.(he is certifeid oracle db admin....so do suggest something compatiable with oracle db , though i am comfortable with php and mysql).
