So far the way I see it the language have come one after other i.e. machine code, assembly, 3gl structured languages and scripting language being the next stop. But this has not really caught on. To me this is due to the fact that most of the people see scripting language need to replace structured languages like Java, C, etc. May be better way to look at it is to see scripting languages built over structured language where the third party or OSS base components would expose hooks to write business logic using scripting language and business processes will be a configuration (like a workflow configuration) process rather than code development process. Even then I have not been able to solve how the frontend is going to integrate with this development model.
