Java "After an initial round of testing we've declared build 147 to be the first Release Candidate of JDK 7. There are only thirteen changes in this build. Over half of them are administrivial updates that don't affect the actual code; the remainder are true showstoppers, including several hard VM crashes and a JIT correctness bug identified by an Eclipse unit test. If no new showstopper issues are reported, and if JSR 336 and the component JSRs pass their Final Approval Ballots in the JCP, then this will be the GA build for release later this month per the schedule posted back in January."

Long running Perl apps?!?!?! WTF? The place you work at should sue the developers of those apps for intentionally obfuscating the source code.

But sure... Call it like you see it. Now let me call it how I see it.
Visa's transaction handling applications have uptimes in months. Tel-co billing applications are under 90% average load and are restarted once per month for deployment or hotfixes. My own "poor little app" is used quite heavily and runs on a server with 1GB or ram. While mailinator works with Java for an incredible amount of time...
