Normally during my Web application development, I write my HTML/CSS/JS and then deploy it (as WAR) on Tomcat. Now I would like to use a general purpose language as a backend to deal with the distribution of the Web application services. I want to do this to learn about how to create a Twitter like Web application to deal with millions of users per second. So the question is what is the fundamental difference between these two methods.
