There's a gravity in that one word. The support and maintenance

Rich, few years ago, I would have wholeheartedly agreed with you.
However, these days, Java is just the standard language of the business.
Guess what is used by SAP Hana Studio? Yes, it's Java. Guess what does
IBM DB2 Data Studio use? Again, it is Java. Commvault Systems, the
company I work for, also uses Java for its GUI. Oracle database
assistants (DBCA,DBUA, Netmgr) are all written in Java. So are
SQL*Developer and Eclipse. Basically, Java can no longer be avoided.
Businesses all across the globe have adopted Java, without consulting me
about that. I surrendered and allowed myself to be conquered. Jihad
against Java is no longer a viable option, despite my love for Perl and PHP.
