Abstract


With the advent of the World Wide Web, several Web development languages have emerged and selecting a suitable one is never an easy task. Over the years, several attempts have been made to evaluate Web development tools vis-à-vis software measurement. This paper presents a new experimental evaluation of nine web development languages. A shopping cart application was implemented in each of the Web development languages
and the following factors were used in our evaluation: Platform, Performance,
Functionality, Ease of use, Reliability, Program length, Portability, Database supports, Speed of execution, Maintainability, Object oriented programming, and Development cost.

Keywords: Web Development languages, World Wide Web, Information Technology (IT) and Web browser
