Java Makes Scripting Languages Irrelevant?
May/June 2005 (vol. 22 no. 3)
pp. 70-71
Diomidis Spinellis, Athens University of Economics and Business
Developments in the 1980s acquainted programmers with the notion of customizing applications through scripting and opened the road for powerful, general-purpose scripting languages such as Perl, Python, and Ruby. With the evolution of Java and Microsoft's .NET offerings (here the term Java is a stand-in for both alternatives), the niche occupied by scripting languages appears to be rapidly shrinking. We are approaching the end of an era. Software developers, as avid tool users, can enjoy viewing the battle from on top and reap the benefits.
Index Terms:
