    I would like to hear of your opinions (specially critics) on PHP, CGI and Servlets; I've got some experience in Perl/CGI programming but find easier and more powerful PHP, on the other hand I know nothing about servlets... So what do you think is the best option to develop a huge database driven website? What are the hottest differences among this three technologies?

    Thanks, Dani

    Never used servlets either

    Perl/CGI is slow and extremely resource intensive unless you use mod_perl, which is a lot 'bitchier' than normal perl because you must use Strict; in all your scripts.

    IMHO, given the choice of PHP vs CGI, I'd take PHP since it is the easiest and fastest of the two.
