InfoWorld.com:
Did PHP kill the Java radio star?
April 22, 2009 @ 12:07:08

InfoWorld.com has asked a Buggles-inspired question about PHP and Java and how they influence each other's use - "Did PHP kill the Java radio star?"

Zend's CEO makes a claim that PHP is disrupting Java. Not only would I beg to differ, I think the use of Java and PHP (and other dynamic scripting languages) together is much more interesting to customers than an "either/or" discussion. [...] To argue that PHP is disrupting Java usage is, if you ask me, missing the point.

They suggest that PHP and Java really aren't in any kind of competition. Instead, they're separate tools that should be applied correctly when the need fits their skills. If anything, PHP has encouraged Java, especially with the creation of a Java-to-PHP bridge that lets them talk back and forth.
