The Web Application Framework Candidates

February 14, 2008

The web application framework race is heating up, so let's take a moment to meet some of the candidates.

Java

George W. Bush

The current leader in the web application framework space, has a declining approval rating from the general public, but still maintains support from members of the static typing party.

Rails

Hillary Clinton

One of the leading candidates from the dynamic typing party. This candidate has experience that proves she can bring change.

Merb

Barack Obama

A candidate from the dynamic party who is quickly gaining support, running on his campaign of hope. Has a stance similar to that of Rails on many of the campaign issues.

Django

John Edwards

Another strong dynamic party candidate, but having a hard time stealing the spotlight from the two dynamic party candidates, despite running on a strong platform.

Grails

John McCain

The leading candidate for the static typing party, particularly among moderate static typers, but having a hard time gaining support from conservative members of the static party who claim that he is too dynamic on some issues.

Scala

Ron Paul

A candidate that appeals to some members of both the dynamic and static typing parties, quickly gaining notoriety on the web for his support of once unconventional ideas like functional programming.

I wonder if its all up in the air except that Java-Bush is going out.

But didn't it seem to many that we backed the right candidate.. was it 8 years ago?
