Which is the best language to develop a database using application


I am having my Database Lab now and i have to make an application which uses a database ( preferably a web based ) application...

I've used both PHP and JDBC with Java. Both have their strengths and weaknesses. If you don't know either language, I personally think that PHP is easier to pick up. Plus, with Java you'll need to deploy the application on a servlet engine like Tomcat.

And if you don't really want to have to do too much
coding look at - there are connectors
for the major OpenSource databases available, and
it's easily extended using Python.
