The reason I use Perl much more often than Java is that I dislike Java's complexity. However, one area where Java is easier for me is class programming. I'd like to see the base Perl 5 be as simple and easy when it comes to creating and using classes. It would be an important step forward and keep Perl in touch with the philosophy of keeping easy things easy. As for Java programmers using Spring for real world problems, I think that is a separate problem for Perl to solve; once it gets around to making simple class programming easy to learn and remember.
