Why not?

Can Perl do distributed database transactions? Can you write stored
procedures in Perl? For Oracle? (<-- the database most often used in
e-commerce.) Are Perl's threads stable? And its libraries entirely
threadsafe? Does Perl even directly support threading at the language
level? Can you trivially embed a perl network application in a browser?

Java's favour is not *entirely* due to massive marketing pimpery.
