| I'd think we need a better handle on the environment to give a meaningful

| lot more (encouraging expansion of list):
| - is everything hand coded or are IDEs involved

IDEs and libraries

| - do we allow JSP & PL/SQL SP

[Quoted] [Quoted] PL/SQL SP is a pain -- no real advantage over well organized Web Toolkit development environment

[Quoted] Use of JSP vs mod_plsql is part and parcel of the discussion

[Quoted] If using both, how best could/should security be integrated?

| - what, if any, code is in place in either language

[Quoted] that's the point of the discussion -- pros and cons as to where to place what type of code

| - what is the ratio of database intensive work to 'computational'


| - can we utilize existing DB packages and suppied procedures

[Quoted] generalized discussion assumes fresh application, but i would think the same or similar issues using existing DB packages would be faced in either environment, but i'm suspecting mod_plsql would have an advantage

thanks for the start
