Survey Tool

By jmarsh ·

I am interested in building a survey taking tool for my company and am a little unsure of what programming language would make the most sense to use. We will be running Apache 2.2 with Tomcat available if necessary. We expect a maximum of 20 people taking the survey at a time. The survey will be approx 30 questions, and if successful will probably lead to multiple surveys running concurrently. I have done work with both PHP and JSP in the past but I am unsure which one would be the best to use in this case. The environment is solely windows, but I would like to avoid learning ASP.net unless it is absolutely the best choice. Does anyone have any arguments one way or the other, and reasons why?

Cost and flexibility

by jmarsh In reply to Why bother?

We currently use a software package for this functionality but we continue to run into situations where we are limited by the softwares capabilities. We want to create a software package that can be modified to meet our specific needs on a survey by survey basis. We also would like maximum control over the data that is coming in and how it is handled. We did review a number of survey tools before making this decision and have used survey monkey for smaller surveys in the past but we are now in a place where we need to find a better more cost efficient option.
