I don't know what you mean by "large" but I'd recommend you get on
the MySQL users mailing list (mysql at lists.mysql.com). There are
folks doing pretty large-scale deployments with MySQL who may be
able to give you specific advice and examples...

Java/JSP, for a lot of reasons, but choice of language is dependent
on your own resources, eh? What do you know best? Or maybe, what do
you want to be maintaining in a year or five? :-)
