Programmers often feel a challenge when it comes to choosing an application development language. Since a single application caters to a certain task, hence language choice for app development becomes critical.
More so when it’s the case of custom application development, selecting an apt programming language holds a lot of significance since this choice is an index of the framework to be used in app development . However, the choice must be made in accordance with the financial capacity of the user, technical proficiency and project requirements.
The application development languages can be put under two major heads namely, open source languages and proprietary languages. Let us have a glance at some of the popular application development languages.
Perl is one of the most preferred open source programming languages since a programmer can get access to any desired development tool from this feature-rich language for creating dynamic web pages. It’s apt for huge development projects as well as fast prototyping. A large number of community members are always toiling hard to improve this powerful programming language even richer.
Hypertext Preprocessor, better known as PHP, is a well-liked programming language owing to its attributes such as flexibility and simplicity. Since community members keep updating & developing this language quite frequently, hence it has been able to carve its niche in popularity among the developer community.
One of the most flexible application development languages, ASP.NET, which any programmer can apply directly with scripted languages as well as compiled languages. However, there is a flip side to it that it is a bit slow in speed. Hence, application development process suffers due to this handicap. ASP.NET can be conveniently attuned with VisualStudio.NET, WebMatrix etc.
Java Server pages, popularly known as JSP, is an open source Java technology that is free to download and use. It is commonly used for creating HTML/XML based dynamic web pages. This app development language can be used even in dearth of Java knowledge. The USP of this language is its rich repository of tag extensions, which are quite simple..
