Comparing programming languages is a common topic among programmers and software developers. With the recent changes in programming standards and continual upgrades in hardware design, many new programming languages are being developed, while existing ones are currently going through several enhancements in terms of design and implementation. In this research, we present a comparative study of four programming languages, C, Java, C#, and Jython, with respect to the following criteria: memory consumption, CPU utilization, and execution time. Each test was performed in a distributed system using TCP sockets with 1, 2, 4 and 8 clients, and on a symmetric multiprocessing system.
