    None of them is better but ASP is no longer developed, JSP is expensive to develop, PHP is totally free and there are more resources.

    What no more ASP? Actually ASP is alive and well - it is referred to now as DOT asp or .asp and runs on the dot net framework.

    So here is the low down on ASP vs. PHP -- sorry I don't know about JSP.

    dot ASP 3.5 is what I'm learning currently, I already know PHP. PHP and ASP are very similar. ASP 3.5 is Microsoft and has to run on a Microsoft server. PHP can run on just about anything under the sun including such wonderful gadgets as a USB key and even an iPod (check out portable web servers and portable apps.)

    PHP is easy to get up to speed with in a relatively small time span. Also there are a lot of scripts already made out there. (It is however fairly easy to hack.)

    There will be people disagree with me - but basically PHP is easier to learn and easier to deploy than ASP. ASP however is more powerful and here is why.

    ASP allows you to develop web applications that are more advanced than PHP, it also allows you to integrate more robust server support. You can build for dot net in several different languages and get them compiled. I'm just half way through my very first book on dot ASP. It's called dot ASP for Dummies and so far it's been a great book that I can read while I wait for this or that to load, move, delete, reboot etc.

    It looks like I'll be learning Visual Basic and using it with my dot asp applications. I kind of blew off what ASP could do until I spent some serious time with a programmer who made his applications jump through hoops I didn't know were possible. After I started to comprehend just how powerful the dot net framework was I knew I had to learn it.

    ASP also will pay you more than PHP because there are fewer people who are good at it. The programming required to do it well also qualifies you as a real dyed in the wool computer programmer so it makes you far more employable.

    I hope this was helpful - cheers - 7hunters

    You have to decide in proporation to your available resources. How much budget you will have. To get a dedicated server, or a shared server. How many visitors you portal will have in long time?
    For example this is going to be a portal with lots of hits per day, and not enough budget to get a dedicated server, you sure will need to do it in Java (JSP).

    One thing to help you is that PHP scripts are executed faster than ASP ones. And JSPs are executed faster than PHP. But PHP is the easiest among this 3 server-side scripting languages.

    HI JINKY,

    ASP -- Microsoft's Active Server Pages is widely supported by inexpensive web hosting companies. Plus, there are many web sites and books about ASP with lots of free code. These are nice advantages.

    JSP (Java Server Pages) -- My experience with JSP was while working at an e-commerce company running Sun, BEA WebLogic and Oracle. It was a J2EE, EJB, Java servlet e-commerce site in an n-tier environment on dedicated servers. Heavy duty stuff that is not for learning scripting.

    PHP has origins in the C programming language. PHP is open source, runs on Unix and Windows servers. (Cool, because I write for whatever server my clients already have installed.)

    My new Microsoft contact had never heard of PHP. Amazing because PHP is precisely the technology that they should be concerned about. Ironic because what initially got me started in developing Windows apps many moons ago was the fact that Microsoft gave away all the developer tools I needed to get started. Free! Zero startup costs to be a developer. Wow. Apple was the only alternative at that time, but becoming an Apple developer was much like paying to join a guild. I would have had to pony up several thousand dollars just to see the tools and begin developing. No contest.

    PHP a bit, and it looks fantastic. However, I'm not sure that it's the -best- place for me to start.

    Re: ASP - PHP - JSP ... which is better?

    I think that you basically work on PHP and thus have this viewpoint. I have worked on both the languages and JSP beats PHP in almost every aspect except that in speed both are the same for small applications but definitely JSP for the larger ones and the other is that PHP is bit easier to code while developing small services . JSP is better approved and is used by most big organizations , its is powered by Java which is ultimate language for cross-platform…

    Re: ASP - PHP - JSP ... which is better?

    Nowadays most of the USA & UK clients want to develop their web projects using PHP, The attraction behind PHP is, server is totally free of cost and many more frame works are available for programmers to built an application.
