I recently published the article “Choosing the Open-Source Framework for Web Application Development” in an online science journal called Open Source Science JournalThe journal it’s published in english four times a year and the authors are mainly, but not restricted to, teachers or candidates for a doctor’s degree in the Academy of Economic Studies ASE.

The article presents a methodology to choose an open-source framework for a web project.

Based on the specific requirements of the project some indicators are calculated to choose the framework and there are also the results of the implementation in a specific project. This article is focused on PHP frameworks but the method is not restricted by the language.

The choice may be different depending on the project (I choosed Zend framework) and some evaluations can’t be made in an objective manner, but this is a good example on how to construct a decision when you choose an open-source framework.
