in thread OT: JavaJunkies (Javamonks sorta)

    Java is much more about OO than any other thing, and Perl is much more about make things done.

I'd reword that just a little, Java is more about the managability of large scale application development than speed. I don't think even Java biggots would argue with that. But this node was about building a Java Support Community. Not Java vrs Perl.

    I'm sorry, but actually my post was a reply to the 1st reply of this node, that talk about the compilation of Java and it's speed, but I have posted this in the wrong place, and I saw that only now!

    And I agree with your point, Java is more about large scale systems.

    Well, Java has his good points, and Perl too, we just need to know what is best for what, since everything has it's good and bad side.

    I know we're straying off topic here, but...

    You'd be really surprised how often I've heard relentless java-bigots say that it was several (three or four, ususally) orders of magnitude faster than perl at the same thing. No joke.

    My only point is: never underestimate the power of people's pre-conceptions. Of course... I guess that's what I get for hanging out in the wrong places.

      Unreal. To promote Java for it's performance gains is just plain wrong. Hell it takes longer to created the VM then any other languge takes to print hello world.
