I & my team are building an professionnal B2B website basically based on Apache/PHP/MySQL/Linux.
For the moment, we are in a very standard hardware architecture with apache php in front, firewall then mySQL database in a dmz.
I have to build an alert system (mail + online warning) and this system has to scan a lot database for matching & user preferences.
As I don't want to overload my front apache/Php servers I think we'll build a cgi server in the dmz to handle all alerts.
My question is:
will I use a php server in the dmz or a java servlet?
I don't know if php could offer me the same advantages.
Thanks for help or comments
