Well, I guess most people couldn't use C with the same productivity, but, yeah, it could be done.

Once again, I apologize for jumping to conclusions, because the whole thing might be misunderstanding on my part. I am not 100% sure, because it's 3am over here. ;)

Anyhow, there are plenty of more suitable Java alternatives for web dev. C# comes to mind, for example. C wouldn't be high on my list of alternatives. Just because it can be done, does not mean it should be done.

I withdraw from this conversation and I hope that, ranting aside, I made some valid points...

Thanks for taking the time to respond. ;)
