Does anyone have a URL that compares all these scripting languages (ruby, jython, groovy, BSF and other javabased/related languages)?
I'm trying to pick one to learn. Do any of them rival perl for an extensive library like CPAN and extensive web based tutorials and support? (firstname.lastname@example.org has fantastic support for beginning perl programmers).
If you're looking for an object-oriented scripting language with a large user base, I'd say go for Python. It may not be the best language but it certainly is more widely used than Ruby, Jython, Groovy, BeanShell, etc.
