I second Ambar on that. While is seriously doubt Java for GUI/frontend
applications right now, it is definitely the best bet for serious
server-side applications. Perl/PHP (even though I have a soft corner
for these) just don't lend themselves very well to OO designs, and
C/C++ is just too risky. Anyway, the CGI process model has been thrown
right out of the window nowadays.
Of course for a quick hack, Perl/PHP still rocks!!! Java has too much
overhead for such stuff.
