Chris Justus' Blog:
4 Reasons Java Will Outlive PHP (My interview with IEEE...)
November 02, 2006 @ 11:12:00

It's always interesting to get an outsider's perspective on the language that we all work with and love (or hate, just depends on how debugging's going). In his latest blog post, Chris Justis does just that with some of his comments from an interview with IEEE magazine about why Java will outlive PHP.

I had the good fortune to be interviewed by an IEEE magazine in February to comment on the demise of Java (vs. PHP). A 45-minute interview turned into a paragraph in the article, but I thought that I might put all of my thoughts up on my blog.

There's some interesting ideas here, but I'm not sure that most of them mean the "victory" of Java over PHP. In fact, most of them seem to reinforce the thought that PHP and Java will coexist happily for a good long while.
