FULL DISCUSSION
 

I agree completely about keeping the business logic separate from the tools layer. I'll go one step further; if you want to ensure the site is maintainable I would avoid using any 3rd generation language for the customer-facing part of the site code, as it's always complicated to pick up a project years down the road. Think of something along the lines of SQL instead. I am a passionate believer in the power of DSLs to act as the bridge between human and machine. And if anyone thinks this is impractical, let me assure you it's quite easy to write a competent DSL. I've built them in Java and in JavaScript and I would never claim to be the sharpest tool in the box.
