in thread J2EE is too complicated - why not Perl?

Enterprise software for me tends to mean, very flexible and very scalable. Let's take perl and php sans mod_perl and the php cachers out there. As a "web language", it's not enterprise level. But even then, perl has its advantages in how flexible it is. Flexibility gives it more power, 'casue in today's day and age, less flexible software, like dbase, isn't helpful. We need replication. Relational capabilities. Live backups.

Peoplesoft is big because of this. They have a mamoth piece of software that's flexible to a point, and they have consulting services to further that felixibility. Apparently, it's also quite scalable too.

Have you looked into vendor assistance in what contracts you are about to forge? Like a 1 month, reduced cost setup thing?

    I believe that our vendor contract reads something like "we agree to place our nuts in a vice and allow the vendor to tighten it as much as the vendor cares to"

    When they are the only company in the field, they screw us for everything, and we smile, and say "thank you sir, may I have another?"

    And secretly we trial GPL software to see if it has caught up yet. Nearly there, but not quite...
