I have programmed in both langauages for some time and have my opinions about both. While PHP is great for some things I feel it is completely not for others. One reason behind this is because PHP is basically a procedure based programming language and thus is harder to manage in larger projects with multiple people working on them. And mixing biz logic in the view can lead to all sorts of problems down the road. I know that PHP has objects you can use but have you ever actually tried to create a MVC based application with php objects? Can get pretty messy. On the other hand java is horrible for smaller projects because of the amount of planning and coding it takes to do smaller things. While easier to maintain and in my opinion much cleaner it is very easy to create enterprise applications seperating the biz logic from the presentation. But as I said I think both languages are great in their own grown. But they are totally different beast. Just my two cents.
