Re: I suspect there are quite a few Java devs out there

Java has 2 key features: GC and not too much power. You can turn loose a bunch of average devs and get them to churn out a pile of Java code that meets the requirements. If they get into a tight spot, the staff bright spark can fix things without too much trouble because Java doesn't provide any sharp things that destroy maintainability when used badly--macros, decorators, metaclasses, etc.
