It's still faster and more efficient for large website engines than many web development platforms. I'm not particularly fond of it, but we've been using it for 8 years now. A recent, internal project I've been assigned to uses RoR/Hobo. While I enjoy developing with Ruby/Rails, it is slow in comparison to a Java-based site (even using JRuby) because of the chatty data management model it uses.

Trade offs. But Java hasn't quite died yet.
