  • Hi

    I think you'll find SAP is like MS, IBM etc, in that when they choose Java, say, over Perl, it's a deliberate decision to make things a bit and slow as possible.

    And if you can't bring yourself to believe they'd do that, perhaps you're in the wrong industry :-(.

  • I can see the utility of Java but just not in the use case I'm working with, where any of the modern dynamic "P" languages would have been a better solution. Using Java for text processing is just painful. Perl would be so much easier for the job I'm doing, but apparently it's just "Not Standard"...

  • I agree 100% with Ron Savage's comment. SAP's prime motivation in any business decision is determining how best to milk your employer for every dime they can.
    • They are company not a charity... I'll agree that they are expensive and not always the best solution. In most cases companies do buy SAP then abuse it, which costs more money in the long run. If you buy SAP then you must do things the "SAP Way" or pain and suffering you will endure...
