Ok, I'll bite.
There was thread on a another list that I read like this recently. The
difference in performance between Java and python on the web server
probably doesn't really matter that much. If anything I might guess that
Java would be faster. Tons of huge applications are run by Java servers
everyday. A gig of RAM on the server is nothing. It might cost a couple
hundred dollars. Big deal. Certainly much less that re-writing the app in
The performance problems will result from aggregating content from the
sources you mention. My guess is you'll be waiting around for the ERP to
respond longer than it take will render the pages in either java or
In my opinion it would be a waste of money to redo this in python. If the
developers are skilled in java, then go with java. If they prefer python
then use it instead.
The only thing you will prove is that the app can be done in python or
java. If anything Java is the proven leader in this field.
