All general purpose languages have some things they are better at than
others.  C, Python, and Lisp are all general purpose languages, but each is
better at some things than others.  If Java is better at web-based security
type stuff for your purposes, use it.  C, Python and most dialects of Lisp
were around before such stuff was commonly done.
