There is an unofficial contents between me (Perl) and another programmer (Java) at work. We are both "racing" to complete a reporting system. Which basically takes data out of Oracle and formats it real pretty like for the users to look at.
I haven't decided whether to go with Template-Toolkit or CGI-Application but I have prototyped two separate apps with each (one with TT and one with CA) and the Java programmer is struggling to get one up.
I looked at the Java code (and it didn't blind me) and I couldn't believe how much code is needed just to talk to Oracle and get stuff out.
