Well actually, it's really internal reflection within apache.org's java group.
Source: The jakarta mail archive...
An email between java-ers about their unhappiness with the failings of java for server-side work, and about its mediocre performance.
"The Pointy Haired Management are influenced by other views of the marketplace, of course, but they don't really make any sense if you can see where technology like this is likely to end up in the longer term. (i.e. replaced by something better). The rest of J2EE ? Well, Servlets is great, JSP is just about OK, (but of course you really wanted a templating engine). And among the rest of the
APIs, there seem to be some that are OK, but an awful lot of it is pretty mediocre. Overall, it is Java *not* living up to its early promise."
The rest of this letter is just as interesting...
Gave me a warm feeling and a something to smile about on a Friday afternoon.
