in reply to Perl verus Java

I agree with most people here that it's mostly a developer knowledge issue. mod_perl for the most part crushes java when it comes down to performance (and number of servers). Sadly, it does sound like someone was just using standard CGI, and comparing to an engine like Tomcat, will lose every time (and it should!).

The thing is, I sit in the exact opposite situation, we have java developers who think perl is silly, while I crush them with 10,000 times the performance using perl. Politics get involved, and like most technical issues, it all just comes down to personalities.

Defend your technical solutions, but don't be so closed minded to see the writing on the wall, if your solution just isn't cutting it..
