In this case, I'm pretty sure the OP was referring to execution speed, not development speed.

    True, I was. I may well have used Java apps that were fast, but I didn't notice. I do notice waiting 15-45 seconds for a page to render in my browser. I'm not trying to spead FUD, and you're point is well made. I think that the issue for the company that is switching to Perl is memory footprint - which is only tangentially related to speed.

      When you use mod_perl or FastCGI, Perl's memory footprint is also quite large. Perl has other advantages, but I don't think it's a clear winner over Java in terms of memory usage.

        I think the issue is space-on-disk, not RAM.
