running on apache on an NT box then probably the websphere
solution would be faster. If its Perl or Python then you might
not see much difference. If its C/C++ you might even find the CGI

You can make a business case for just about anything if you
Perl/Python CGI will almoist certainy develop faster than Java.
C++ is about the same IME
Maybe, Java's built in networking/security features are a big
plus, maybe the biggest plus.

Nope, you can do that in Perl and certainly in Python (or Ruby).
