3. Java is bloated and a memory hog. Well there is no secret about that, if your aim is to develop fast, responsive software, then do not use Java.

These days Java is mainly used for web applications.

Java is extremely fast, and mostly used for backends today. The large servers. Not web anymore. Several of the large Stock Exchange systems are developed in Java. The worlds(?) fastest stock exchange system at NASDAQ is developed in Java.

You obviously dont work with large Enterprise servers with huge demands on performance and latency.
