Thanks for the info. :-) FYI -- I am teaching both PHP and JAVA at college level and have taught both for several years as well as other Web Languages. My recent question was simply an attempt to get documentation to support which server-side Web Language is the most popular. Both PHP and Java can be used server-side. I also realize that Java is used for native Android because I also teach Mobile Application Development (MAD -- I even coined the name). So, I am up to my butt in languages (and people who think different than me) -- I'm just trying to get documentation to back up my what I think I know.
