Im developing an open source web-based reporting system(allow end users create custom reports from RDBMS).
Initially it must be deployed on Apache server using MySQL on Linux or Windows.
But eventually it should be deployable within any web based enviroment, using any web server and any RDBMS.
Opinions on programming language best suited to achieving this would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks in advance
Common Lisp, Scheme, Ruby, Perl, java *shudder*, php..
any one of those should be capable of achieving what you want.. they're pretty much in order of most complex -> least complex (i think...)
I would investigate ruby rails. Either that, or one of the php frameworks.
