Creating online forms
I work in an institute and I need to do online registeration form for courses that contains only information without payment.
I don't know what programming should I use? I learned frameworks (beginner) such as struts2 and DBMS PostgreSQL but I think I don't need to use them here because it's complicated while what I should do is simple and I need to create it in a short time.
I saw a video about creating forms in Google Docs and I think it's useful, but there is no feature for limiting submissions so I need to do it manualy.

What programming language do you want to use?

I know Java, I can create JSP pages with Struts framework.
I'm thinking of PHP too, also I'm not sure if it can be done with asp or jquery.
And to store the data I need DB, What DBMS should I use?
I don't know what is better to create online forms, and if is it correct that I can use any language?

Is not that hard to do, a simple form using PHP shoud be nice.
If you need help I can help you out.

JSP, ASP and PHP are all viable choices. Your choice of DBMS will probably depend on the language you choose. Most PHP applications use MySQL. Most ASP applications use MSSQL I think. I'm not sure about JSP. However, I think all three languages have bindings that will allow you to use almost any database that you want. MySQL and Postgresql are both free, which makes them popular.
It is correct that you could use any language.

Thank you it's clearer to me now.. I'll have a look at them and choose one.
