You just asked two questions only one of which is possible to answer. Yes, it is possible to independently develop a newspaper website. The only comment I would have about suing J2EE is that it might be a bit more heavy-duty; I do not know your scaling requirements. Regardless, the language you shoose is irrelevant.
As far as problems, how can anyone answer that? Maybe you only have 3 fingers on one hand and can only type 10 characters per minute. In that case, it might take you a very long time. Would that be a problem? How do you define 'problem?'
