I am finalizing technology stack of my project with real time tracking and user base in thousands.
o Project Scope
A vehicle tracking (hundreds of tracks hourly), HR (over .5m) and asset management of said users.
o Product life
Java Web Services
My options are:
1. HTML 5 + AngularJS with Java Services at back
2. Any server side programming language (Java or Python or even PHP) and Java Services at back
I want to know that what challenges, pitfalls and benefits do I have when I choose HTML 5 over full fledged server side language like PHP, Rails or Python.
Should I stick with server side programming language by assuming that HTML 5 is still not ready for the enterprise?
I do not want to ignite a debate but I want to learn from hard earned experience of the community. Please guide me if I have posted this question at wrong place.
