Programming Languages

Java – Is based upon the C++ language and is a leading software language for web development due to its higher security features. Many browsers support Java, almost all of them at this point, and has been developed by Sun Microsystems. Its advantages include non-platform specifics, byte-code compiled which is faster, and of course safety in the form of verified applets. Java is fairly complex and this is viewed as its major drawback.


Perl – Perl has its roots in UNIX system administration and is a compiled language of UNIX and C elements. The idea was to give easier use to programmers by combining elements and aspects of existing languages. Perl is faster than its forebears as well as being far simpler than Java, as its proponents explain. Perl, however, doesn’t lend itself to security and graphics on its own; a programmer may find these aspects of the language in the Perl/Tk extension.


Javascript – Is a language developed to integrate HTML and Java applets. It differs from Java due to the fact that it is interpreted and not compiled; in addition javascript only supports certain built in objects and no user classes. Javascript is designed to extend HTML and keep its ease of use and simplicity. Java scripting aims to bridge the gap between Java’s complexity and using it with HTML in a painless fashion.

HTML – HTML is a mark up language that is interpreted by the internet browser being used by the end user. It was originally developed to share research materials and data at CERN and was given to the world to create the world wide web in the eighties. HTML is simple in its execution and syntax making it ideal for early web applications. Although HTML is still used in most web pages it is incapable of keep up with the demands of modern web pages which has spurred the use of various other languages and scripts to achieve intended and wanted goals.
