With the advent of the World Wide Web, several Web development languages have emerged and selecting a suitable one is never an easy task. Over the years, several attempts have been made to evaluate Web development tools vis-?-vis software measurement. This paper presents an experimental evaluation of nine web development languages. A shopping cart application was implemented in each of the Web development languages and the following factors were used in the evaluation: Platform, Performance, Functionality, Ease of use, Reliability, Program length, Portability, Database supports, Speed of execution, Maintainability, Object oriented programming, and Development cost.
