Putting Java/.Net/PHP/Python to the test?

P: n/a
Hello

I was wondering if someone had put Java, .Net, PHP, and Python to
the test by writing the same type of application, such as an online
store or CRUD application, and pushed it to see how the three tools
behaved under load.

That would let people make an informed choice when choosing a tool to
write web apps, and put an end to the (possibly) legend that Java/.Net
scale better than PHP/Python.

Thx.

There are way too many variables to make such a test useful. A
particular language may do great in one scenario yet lousy in another.

CRUD with what database server? With MySQL, Java (at least in
its Tomcat implementation) would finish dead last (unless something
changed since the infamous Friendster fiasco); with Microsoft SQL
Server, .Net is likely to be beyond comparison. Oracle is omnivorous
enough to be a good comparison platform, but how many PHP/Python
developers work with Oracle full-time?

tool to write web apps,
To write Web apps, you need to choose more than just a scripting
language; you need to choose a complete software stack (OS, DB,
HTTP server, and scripting language). Moreover, you need to
choose a software stack based not only on its performance, but
also on its cost, including the cost of hardware on which it is
going to run...
and put an end to the (possibly) legend that Java/.Net scale
better than PHP/Python.
There's no need. The fact that PHP and Python are scalable in
principle can be readily ascertained by looking at Flickr (written
in PHP) and YouTube (written in Python), among other things.
