Olio – a web 2.0 benchmark?

So there’s a new project in the Apache Incubator called Olio. It’s a “toolkit that can be used to evaluate the suitability, functionality and performance of web technologies”. There are already implementations in Java, PHP, and Ruby on Rails. Here are some additional versions that I would like to see:

  • Django (Python)
  • Turbogears (Python)
  • Lift (Scala)
  • Seaside (Smalltalk)
  • Erlang
  • Clojure
  • Haskell
  • Common Lisp

If I’ve left out your favorite language, framework, feel free to add it in the comments. Or better yet, show up to the project with an implementation. Wide Finder this ain’t, but the results could still be pretty interesting.

    Ted, I was really excited when you announced you’d be focusing on Python inside Sun but I really miss any Python related posts in your blog since then (besides going to conferences). Aren’t there any exciting news? are you instead focusing in other dynamic languages (ruby, javascript…)? is there any ongoing effort to improve python support in OpenOffice (there’s a patch for it but has been unapplied for a very very long time)?

    It’s a combination of me being too busy to write any posts (travelling), looking at dynamic languages as a whole, not just Python, and it taking time for things to happen.

    Can you point me to the OpenOffice bug report/patch?

    Expect some Python related news next week.
