As asked in a previous question, I'm looking to create a small MMO that will be deployed onto GAE.
I'm confused about what technologies I could use for the user interface, I've considered the following
- JSP Pages - I've got experience with JSP/JSTL and I would find this easy to work with, it would require the user having to "submit" the page each time they perform an action so may become a little clumsey for players.
- Applet - I could create an applet that sits on the front end and communicates to the back end game engine, however I'm not sure how good this method would be and have not used applets since university..
What other options do I have? I don't have any experience in Flash/Flex so there would be a big learning curve there.
Are there any other Java based options I may be able to use?
My game will be text based, I may use some images, but I'm not intending to have any animations/graphics etc
