A few days back, IndicThreads reported on how Python is starting to enter the enterprise application space and today we came across two more stories about how LAMP technologies (Linux, Apache, MySQL and Perl/Python/PHP) are challenging J2EE and .NET. J2EE and .NET better get ready for some serious competition in the near future.
Here are some excerpts from the articles:
"Perhaps as Java and .Net vie to outdo each other,
the LAMP stack might have a chance to pass both of them by as a favored
stack. Users can only benefit from having a third strong competitor to
force the Java and Microsoft camps to keep their mega-platforms state
of the art, as I see it."
"Early PHP applications could often be dismissed
as hacks built using crude methods, but modern versions of the language
offer many of the object-oriented tools available to C# or Java
developers, and its execution core is stable and efficient."
"The open source LAMP platform
is a mature alternative that has a lot to offer, particularly for projects on a tight budget."
