I don't get it, you say:
I'm not going to get into the argument of whether Perl is better than Java or vice versa
But your post is just an implication that Perl is better than Java for glue code. This implication isn't backed up by anything, at all. If I misinterpreted your intent, then what was the point of the post (was there one at all?), I don't get it.
Saying we write this, this, and this in Perl doesn't mean much to me. Please provide explanations of why Perl's so much better for the tasks and include the Perl code (and corresponding Java code) so we can analyze it ourselves.
Better yet, before posting any Java vs. Perl threads, ask yourself "would I post this to a Java forum" and think about it for a while. This is essential to achieving REAL ULTIMATE POWER!
Posts are HTML formatted. Put <p> </p> tags around your paragraphs. Put <code> </code> tags around your code and data!
Titles consisting of a single word are discouraged, and in most cases are disallowed outright.
