Hey.. sounds like my current project o-O
Any language would be suitable... its up to you based on your expertise. You can do it with CGI( using Perl/C/C++/etc), Ruby on rails, PHP, JSP, ASP.NET etc.

Trust me, using a relational database is going to be heck alot easier compared to using a flat file database. Web applications are generally easier to develop compared to normal applications, so i don't see why you think web based is harder.

In the end what you choose is entirely up to you. However you will need to give reasons as to why you chose it.

I'd say flat files alone (so this excludes bdb etc.) are harder to handle than a proper database and SQL is easy to learn anyway.

Any languages are fine, depending on how do you want to develop your software. For a medium to big scale system, you could use JSP+Servlets+Java Beans with a simple db, such as MySQL, or PHP + MySQL/PostgreSQL or ASP/ASP .NET.

If you are familiar with Java, obviously the first choice would be better, if you are from a C/C++ background, PHP is an easy transition and if you are from a VB background, ASP would suit you fine.

Doing web based is much better than doin standalone projects with database access. Besides, you're lucky your institute lets you do web-based projects, mine wasn't not unless it's something sophisticated.

since you are doing web base app and the clinic system is not big after all..
for fast and easy...best combo is PHP + MySQL. Try not to do a flatfile system, you will end up spending more time tracking the records in the flat file. No matter how, you still need a relation database for fast and efficient system.

The underlying architecture of IIS or what ever web server is actually a multithreaded service which handle multiple threads. Unless you have any idea what is multithreading and concurrent access control concept. I don't think you would want to touch on flat file in web application.

The web server and DBMS is actually doing all these dirty works behind the scene for you which make it look simple.
Unless you think you can beat the DBMS design with a good reason behind, you shouldn't even consider doing so. Using flat file doesn't make your application look good or better in another word.

ASP with IIS server is the way to go. ASP is VB-like scripting language. To host ASP, simply install IIS server.

IIS is available for WinXP and above and you doesn't need an extra CD to install. Easy Microsoft style of user friendliness make it easier to install and configure everything. MsSQL server on the other hand need some money. It's so easy to configure and build database with the visual tools. Unlike PHP, mySQL and Apache, Microsoft best part is it provides you with visual tools

WAMP (Windows, Apache, mySQL, PHP) on the other hand, are more complicated to configure. But if are you talking about security and performance wise, WAMP beats IIS. With the lack of visual tools, you need to enter command by words. Fortunately, some developer build something like WAMP server, EasyPHP that combine and configure everything in just one installation. Pretty neat huh?

That my point of view smile.gif
