Whichever the person who is doing it is more familiar/comfortable with. Both of these languages are up to the task.
One possible advantage of RoR is that it may make it easier to implement interactive pages, such as pages where you click on a ‘+’ icon and see a summary of what’s on a following pages. Or where your put your mouse pointer over a product to see whether it’s currently available.
