I would have to disagree that cgi is somehow considered undesirable
because it is "old". Java holds alot of promise, but is not the only game
in town. Nor, do I think it will be the only game in town. There are many
shops with RPG programmers that can develop web pages with CGI
that satisfy all of thier needs.

I am not debating whether Java is good or bad, nor am I saying that
Java should be ignored. Quite the opposite as I am in the process of
learning Java myself. I just get excited when I see things dismissed as
being antiquated because it's not the new, cool thing. After all, that
same argument has been used to write obituaries about the AS/400.

Now, if you would like to explain why you feel servlets are superior to
CGI I'm eager to listen. Please be specific. Just because it's Java is
not enough. The fact that it can be run "other" platforms is very
important to some, but not to everybody.
