Coming in a little late on this, but...
Webware ( uses servlets that look fairly similar
to Java servlets.  I don't know how they rank in speed, but I don't see
any reason Java should win decisively.  It doesn't matter, though,
because in both cases speed is not usually a bottleneck (i.e., both are
"fast enough" which is all that matters).
