Re: I haven't downvoted a post in a long time...

Why the downvotes for @tekHedd? He/she is right - Java is very popular for server apps, and not a half bad choice for that matter.

Unfortunately most folks who complain about Java are conflating it with the crappy desktop JRE from Oracle, which incidentally isn't even the reference implementation.
