Submission + - Java vs. C#: Which Performs Better in the 'Real World'? (

Nerval's Lobster writes: "Software developer Jeff Cogswell writes: “Let’s compare Java and C#, two programming languages with large numbers of ardent fans and equally virulent detractors. I’m not interested in yet another test that grindingly calculates a million digits’ worth of Pi. I want to know about real-world performance: How does each language measure up when asked to dish out millions of Web pages a day? How do they compare when having to grab data from a database to construct those pages dynamically? The results were quite interesting.” Having worked as a professional C# programmer for many years, Cogswell found some long-held assumptions challenged."
