The Camel and the Snake, or "Cheat the Prophet": Open Source Development with Perl, Python and DB2

By DatabaseJournal.com Staff

Perl, PHP, and Python, three programming languages without anything more than enthusiastic grassroots support, are used in many software projects today. Why? There are many possible reasons, foremost of which are their flexibility and simplicity. Still other reasons are their portability and extensibility.

To help you gain a better understanding of their popularity with Open Source developers, we will take you through a tour of the important features and functions of Perl and Python. We have singled out these two because they share many common traits, such as an interpreted scripting environment, rich programming interfaces, and many different extensions.

Using these language extensions in combination with IBM's DB2 database and with Web services provided through the Google APIs, we will build both a client and server-side application.
