It just seems to me, from the comparitively little I know about the subject, that Perl is simply much better for almost all tasks than Java, because it is more popular among developers, you have access to the source and has more technical support in terms of freely available libraries and documentation?

The Internet already has loads of advocacy articles, most of which aren't very good... If you know "comparitively little" I suspect you're going to have trouble improving on what's already out there.

There are some good reasons for people to use Java, along with the bad ones; if you don't know what those reasons are, and aren't willing to invest any effort into learning about them, then you're left with "I can't imagine any good reason for people to use Java" which I can assure you is due to a failure of imagination.
