Abstract

The availability of many platforms for developing dynamic web applications gives rise to the problem of choosing the most appropriate platform for teaching web applications development in tertiary institutions. Platforms selected should be suitable for teaching the relevant concepts. This study establishes and apply a set of criteria for evaluating the suitability of the platforms for teaching XML processing. These criteria were tested by evaluating four platforms namely Java Servlets, JavaServer Pages (JSP), Active Server Pages (ASP) and PHP Hypertext Processor using various research methods including descriptive inquiry, document analysis, observations and programming tests. While ASP platform was found to be most suitable on applying the criteria for XML processing, the significance of the study lies in the establishment of a comprehensive but specific set of criteria that can be used in conjunction with other criteria as a scientific basis for selection.
