I was reading through my java book which is called Introduction To Java Programming Sixth Edition by Y.Daniel Liang and I was reading about databases. I just wondered if java is used in webdesign for the purpose of creating databases and if that was instead of MySql and what the advantages in using it.
I myself am interested in becoming a webdesigner and so my interests have been in Mysql php, photoshop etc. However as part of my degree course I am also doing java and I am just wondering what its uses are in webdesign apart from game creation?
It seems to slow to be used to create dynamic webpages and PHP and advanced CSS seem ot do a good job with that.
