Java-powered sites tend to suck  FEB 26 2002

Ecommerce sites that are slow, time out a lot, throw bad errors, and are generally not very pleasant to use tend to have URLs containing "jsp", "servlet", or ".jhtml". Perhaps that's an unfair generaliztion to make because sites using Java on the back-end can be implemented and designed properly, just like with any other programming language, but there seems to be a strong correlation nonetheless. The evidence mounts: Avis, Enterprise, National Car Rental.
