PlentyofCode.com:
J2EE vs ASP.NET vs PHP
July 25, 2007 @ 10:18:00

From the Programming Resources, News and Ideas blog (plentyofcode.com), there's yet another comparison article, but between three different languages this time - J2EE vs ASP.NET vs PHP on multiple criteria.

In this article, I wanted to compare the web application development platforms which I have been using for recent years. My comparison has no aim to make one platform better than others, or vice versa. These are all my own thoughts and what I have experienced during the development of web applications using the three platforms. It is open to you to express your opinions and stands as a comment.

They rank them on a three-point scale from 8 (good) up to 10 (best) and look at things like:

  • Syntax
  • Easy to Learn
  • Platform
  • OOP '" Object Oriented Support
  • Performance
  • Support and Community
  • Cost

PHP scored relatively high (nines and tens) on most things with the exception of "Syntax" because of some of its "odd characters" to work with objects and classes.

Zend Developer Zone:
Stuart Nicholas on J2EE, Interop, and ZendCon
October 24, 2006 @ 13:50:24

In another of the series of interviews over on the Zend Developer Zone, Cal Evans got a few minutes with QEDWiki developer Stuart Nicholas to talk about QEDWiki, his talk at this year's Zend/PHP Conference and Expo, and merging J2EE and PHP.

Since QEDWiki is one of the coolest things I've seen in a while I can't help but feel that his session at ZendCon is going to be cool too. I since I love cool, I decided to give Stuart a call to see if I could get a sneak preview.

There's only the two questions but the answers are interesting. Cal asks about some of the contents of Stuart's talk (the sneak peak) and some about the interoperability between PHP and J2EE that's on the way.

Chris Shiflett's Blog:
Ruby on Rails Fans
February 02, 2006 @ 06:57:19

In his latest post today, Chris Shiflett takes a good look at Ruby on Rails from the perspective of a PHP developer to see what all of the fuss is about.

I'm glad to see all of the hype surrounding Ruby on Rails lately. I've always been an advocate of open source software, and Ruby (particularly Ruby on Rails) is yet another feather in the cap. I'm not afraid to say it - I'm glad Rails exists.

I do think it's good to maintain some perspective, and some Ruby fans are more than a bit overzealous. Ruby on Rails is a niche technology, and although all signs indicate that its popularity is growing rapidly, it's a bit premature to be thinking that it will dethrone existing technologies.

He goes on, mentioning that he doesn't see Rails as a direct competitor to PHP, rather two technologies that have the flexibility/power to do the same jobs well. There are "camps" for both sides, but really, as Chris puts it:

It's also important to realize that excitement is subtly different than popularity. Excitement is trendy.

He lists a few sites built in both, noting that, of the popular sites out there, things seem pretty equal. He also notes that, despite what language you're using, the real key is that it takes a good developer to write a good application, regardless of the language...
