Java was taken up by corporate IT departments because its flaws mesh well with theirs. A Java web application produced by seven or more corporate functionaries, each in his own department, could be done much faster by one or two (say, a coder and a graphic designer) using a better-designed system. However, to allow that would interfere with job security for those functionaries and their managers, and would bridge organizational barriers carefully erected by the latter.
