Just like to point out that Java, on a server, isn't interpreted code. It's dynamically profiled and compiled code.


Which should yield much better performance and memory utilization then either interpreted or just compiled code. At a cost of a larger minimum memory size to implement. Sun recommends a minimum of 2G of Ram.

    What? You seriously think Java is faster than compiled code? OK, you solve a problem in Java, and I'll solve it in C.

    Java might be comparable to PHP, but I don't see it ever competing with C in terms of performance alone. That isn't what it was designed for.

      Apart from Java being slower to develop in (so the greedy little pickpockets can get fatter consultant checks), I don't see any reasons for anyone to write anything in Java.
      C code can be written just as portable as Java, and if properly done it will run with less CPU overhead and with considerably less memory.
      As a comparison, Linux (which is written in C with a few required steps of assembly code) runs just fine on an SX33 with 8Mb of RAM. Try that with a java applet of choice. Or maybe you shouldn't. After all, 8Mb <<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<<< 2Gb.
