    Designing Desktop Software


    Hi,
    I am wanting to create some desktop software that requires interaction with a database and possibly work alongside a mobile app which hopefully will work on 3 platforms iOS, Android and Blackberry this app will have access to the database the desktop software uses

    I haven't done anything like this before and would like to know what would be the ideal language to design the desktop software in I have some experience with Java and PHP however I don't think either are suited for the task given that PHP is web language and Java desktop programs are dead (annoying given its cross-platform friendly)

    Does anyone have any thoughts on what I should use?

    Thank you

    You can try the RadBuilder, I think.

    For software development on the Desktop I would recommend C++ with QT, or JUCE. Both QT, and JUCE will work on Android, Linux, Windows, iOS, and Mac OSX. Of the two though, QT is the only one that will work on BlackBerry. Don't worry if you aren't use to C++. If you can program Java, you can program C++.
