  • in 2001 I wrote a client/server application in perl and C for my Degree. Later in the year I tried to replace the GTK/C application with a Java client.

    In short after 2 weeks I gave up. The URL Class didn't support any protocols other than FTP and HTTP , I had to convert between dozens of different objects, cast variables, and jump through hoops to do the same as a simple 5 line perl script.

    Unless there is a ready-build shrink-wrapped component Java connectivity is unnacceptable. The only use for Java is where there are tools to generate tedious code skeletons, dozens of suited trained chimps to churn hundreds of lines of code and applications that only provide a java API.
