Same questions that I'm asking myself right now... I'm coming "from the other side", having taken part in J2EE-projects and seeing them all fail for one or another reason.
One, might have been the "explicitness" of Java, or the necessity for blowing it all up, excessively. You just don't get things done fast and easily. And that's where Perl comes in - having programmed some stuff in Perl/Mason and some little modules for daily server administration, I see: Yes, in Perl, you get things done, quickly!
That's why I would think Perl is superior to Java. But Java/JEE seems to sound better to "the market".
How would Perl compare to JEE nowadays (6 yrs. later than the original post) - with respect to: completeness, connectivity, security, scalability, ...whatever is associated with the general fitness of JEE for any kind of business case - !? Is there anything self-contained, in Perl, that we could call "comparable" to JEE?
