This drives the question home.... what does scalability mean for your average or above average site. We are not talking google or yahoo here.

To tell you the truth, I've used Perl in many, high traffic sites. Scalability has never been an issue for me.

But that is not what investors and other tech people will want to hear. They will assume, correctly or not, that those sites were not busy enough. They assume, most often incorrectly that they will have more traffic. Even if they only have 1000 employees.

So I guess what I'm asking is why people think java better... why do they belive it will solve the problem? Why is scalability brought up so much for companies who clearly do not require the level of scale they think they do?

These are marketing questions so I guess I'm asking for a good way to respond to these marketing people. Buzz words or not... that's what I *think* I'm up against.

Or maybe I'm just going crazy and not focusing on the right companies to sell software to.
