Web Builder Zone:
5 things that PHP envies Java for
January 20, 2011 @ 11:44:33

On the Web Builder Zone today Giorgio Sironi has a new article with five things he thinks the PHP world is jealous about when they look at the features Java has to offer.

I've seen many programmers starting to think that Java is old and verbose, and trying to jump on the bandwagon of scripting languages such as PHP and Ruby. But it's not so simple, as these languages are late to the party in many areas. Here are the 5 things that as a PHP programmer I started envy Java for.

The five features on his list are:

  • Hibernate
  • Generics
  • Keeping objects in memory between requests
  • Java Collection Framework
  • Asynchronous processing

Keep an eye out for his next article - he flips it around and talks about what Java developers have to envy about PHP's features.
