Response to: Performance NOT EQUALS to Scalable

I think the previous commenter is observing that
*real* scalability is architectural, and explicitly
provides for distribution and parallelization.

That's apt, of course. Without providing details
I can't afford (in time) just now, I'll counter-assert
that, while Java certainly has plenty of distribution
stories told about it, PHP and other scripting alternatives
should feel no shame. I applaud author Jack Herrington
for at least opening the debate with a proper focus on architecture.
His is an article that needed to be written, and I
hope it will be widely read.
