Scripting languages

Lately I've been thinking about how important it is for a company to standardize on a scripting language. We had some scripts that help us deploy our software on client machines. The problem is they rely on bash being in a certain location the machine running the script. If we write our scripts in a java scripting language and take the language with us when we go to deploy the software it will solve all of our problems. Currently at work we have perl scripts, python scripts, groovy scripts, and of course the standard shell scripts.

I think for personal use on your own machine in the office you can use what ever you wish but scripts that others in the company use it should be standardized. Just might thoughts after doing a hard run today.

Hi Glenn - Ruby is also an interesting cross-platform alternative. And Ant.

Let's start a Victoria Groovy User's Group!

Glenn - I found your post through a webpage that combines the blog posts of 109 Victoria bloggers. It's neat to see what people in Victoria are blogging about in near real-time. If you're curious: http://jonaquino.blogspot.com/2005/04/assembling-list-of-local-bloggers.html
