Stefan Mischook's Blog:
PHP vs. Perl vs. Java '" a student's question.
August 18, 2009 @ 08:40:30

He talks about his experience using Perl in web-based environments and some of the issues he's seen around using it or Java for web applications...including a suggestion for Java's place in the world:

Java is great for the enterprise...that means, if you plan to be working for very large companies. But it takes a lot longer to create anything in Java vs PHP.
