in reply to Arguments needed for comparision between Perl, ASP and Java

If you are writing applications that support a web site then you could probably choose any of the languages mentioned. Each offers a number of advantages and disadvantages that need to be considered. Many have been covered in this thread but here are a couple of mine!

If you are developing code for yourself (school / college project, hobby etc.) then you should use whichever language you like / know best. If you are developing code for someone else then you should choose the tools that are known by the majority of the coders or technical staff so that the code can be maintained and supported after you are gone.

Code in an environment that is best suited to your target environment. Most hosting companies support ASP by way of ChilliSoft but a perl script might be easier to deploy.

Whichever language you choose to develop stuff in - enjoy yourself while you do it!

    Now why would you ever do that? It's much better to ensure that the written contract declares that any maintaining done by you will cost extra (ie: not included in the project price itself). You then code the project using methods that could only ever make sense to yourself. Presto, you will now be called in for all required maintenance and some extra money in your pocket!
