    PHP doesnt feature jerry

    Looking at the graph, it looks like Java is the slowest of all the mentioned languages (http://img.osnews.com/img/5602/results.jpg)

      Horses for courses really, all the languages are very good at what they do

      I just happen to like Java as well

          Did it at Uni. years ago, I used a lot in my last few jobs.

          Did some very nice things at Cable and Wireless (Internet Platform Technology) & Lockheed Martin (UK Government Systems) when I worked there.

          I've just started a personal project using it as well.

          Python is nice too, especially when run on Psyco

          Though over the last 5-6 Years PHP has probably been my main language, though the cross over in experience and design skills is language independent as are the typos !!

              Java/JSP is very, very hard to administer. I had to do with some CMS systems, which used a Java API via JSP. Horrible, ServletExec and Resin where doing quite a good job, but not for productive high volume web sites.

                Eh, that's all very subjective. I write and maintain a J2EE site and have no issues.

                    You've peaked my interest.

                    What are some of these features?

                    And excellent interview.

                        • PHP 5 features the Zend Engine 2.
                        • XML support has been completely redone in PHP 5, all extensions are now focused around the excellent libxml2 library (http://www.xmlsoft.org/).
                        • SQLite has been bundled with PHP. For more information on SQLite, please visit their website.
                        • A new SimpleXML extension for easily accessing and manipulating XML as PHP objects. It can also interface with the DOM extension and vice-versa.
                        • Streams have been greatly improved, including the ability to access low-level socket operations on streams.

                          I have indeed, I'm looking forward to using them in earnest.
