Is Pascal suitable for Web Development?

(1/3) > >>

I mean backend only. I'm learning backend web development with Java now. I'm not yet learn any framework. Thing like listen to a port, programming sockets and connect to database. Is Pascal suitable? I see the trend now is languages that code as short as possible, Pascal is too wordy, as bad as Java, will it unproductive when using Pascal? Java has many frameworks that do-it-for-you, somehow mitigated this. Tks  :)

Yes, No.

Unproductive is bugs as a result of a typing mistake such as "=" instead of "==" or "|" instead of "||"... and many of those.  Not only that is rather unproductive, it is a regrettable waste of time due to the outstanding built-in mediocrity of those more "succinct" languages.

It's much better to say it in 10 words and be right than to say it in 2 words and be wrong.  The latter is a very productive way of being unproductive.

Thaddy:
I have worked with a team of about 40 fte + 20+  testers on a website for 500.000+ customers that is fully written in Object Pascal, a tiny bit Java and Oracle (clustered) running on 40+ servers.
So, yes, and it even scales much better than some web oriented languages like PHP. https://www.alex.nl/
Many forum members know that.....
There are more examples....(e.g. coolblue.nl ) that are mostly written in Object Pascal.

These examples are not large scale, but huge scale.

I couldn’t have said it any better.

And above this - Code it much more often read than written, so productive is, what’s good to read and understand. This is a question of philosophy - say “C-like vs. the rest of the world”.
