I actually spent the past 5 years doing some horrible Java tricks, including the whole webserver idea. I believe I know enough Java to judge it... I don't know PHP very well... I usually don't spend longer than 30 minutes looking at PHP code. I see some differences with perl and things that might be considered bad but I know too little about it to make an unbiased judgement. I hear some nice things about it, I hear some bad things about it. At the moment, with the very little I know about PHP, I'd still go for PHP in a PHP vs Java match. You can call me script addict any time soon now.
