Shouldn't people compare PHP with JSP instead of Java?

Java can be fast if implemented correctly, look at Nutch and Lucene. They are used in high traffic environment, and the performance is very good. Can you imagine writing Nutch and Lucene with PHP?!! Is it even usable even if possible?

PHP is more like the Display/Presentation Layer, and the Java is the Business Logic Layer. I think they both can coexist using php-java-bridge.

So let's be friends. :)

    I'm only going to recall a completely true sentence by Bill Snyder:

    "Java is becoming the new Cobol"

    Java, the oldest new programming language around, is falling out of favor with developers. When it comes to developing
    the increasingly common rich Internet applications, Java is losing ground to Ruby on Rails, PHP, AJAX and other cool new
    languages. And there are even reports that Microsoft’s .Net, of all things, is pushing Java out of the enterprise. Makes you wonder
    whether Sun was smart to change its stock-ticker code to JAVA last summer

    I realize your post is two years old, but for posterity:

    No need to imagine anymore.
