in thread [OT] Am I just a bad programmer?

Liferay. Written in Java. And total crap.

Indeed. A client of $work chose to deploy liferay about 6 years ago. It was glacially slow, a massive resource hog and yet fell over in a faint breeze. They persisted with it for 4 months or so before giving it up as a lost cause. I've no idea how much they squandered on it but expect it wasn't cheap.

If I were in this game for the money I would be a java programmer/publisher. You can apparently write and ship complete dross in java and still people will pay enterprise-level cash for it.

    Somehow it must be (or is) a kind of Urban Legend with this Java stuff. And project managers like The Promised Land and The Holy Grale. IT must be good. Because from Sun/Oracle. Apple used it for years for their WebObjects. IT must be good. IT is a real programming language because it’s OO. IT must be good. If repeated > 1000 times everybody believes it. Cato used a similar method more than 2000 years ago. And Carthago disappeared. IT is good. Else bad programmers. Basta. Hint: If you want to get brain-fucked for some unknown reason take a look at the code of LifeRay. Don’t do it. I have sorrows about your mental health. One more thing: I can’t remember how often I was forced to get up at about 2 or 3 AM to kill some fubar crashed Java applications. And the word TomCat should be better avoided when I’m in the room.
