For my final year project I designed a web robot, using the LWP library of Perl modules, check it out here if you are interested: Nebukadnezar Project. It's pretty cool and I managed to get 85% for it! :-)
I'm not sure what you've decided to do, but the main advantages and reasons I quoted for using Perl were:
The most important thing is that you pick the tool that is best for the job, Also if you know how to program in Perl this is another good reason to choose it over Java. You need to think about the time it would take to learn another language.
Anyway I hope that's some help, it really depends what kind of web service you are going to write as well I think? Although I guess the most important thing is to take the advice of your supervisor, after all it's them who will be marking it!
Good luck with the project!
By the way, thanks to all those people that helped out on my project last year! It was much appreciated and the reason I ended up with a 2:1 :-)
