Forum OpenACS Q&A: Response to Continuing TCL Development / Beginning Java.

Posted by David Eison on
Most of the reasons for switching to Java aren't nearly as compelling for users of OpenACS (integration, sales, marketing, speed, etc.)  If you can get 4.0 TCL feature-complete, there's no great reason not to stick with it for a while, unless you are highly concerned about worldwide adoption (the "TCL's ok" argument is likely to be harder to make to new users with aD and Vignette switching to Java).  I suspect most people here are more concerned about getting their jobs done, however, in which case you would generally stick with what you know until there's a compelling reason to do otherwise.
