My developing group is going to make a decision of “moving from Coldfusion to J2EE”.
Can anyone (who has experiences on Coldfusion MX and J2EE) of you give me some insights on advantages(of J2EE) to make this technical change happen.
Thank you!

development will take longer? you will need bigger servers and more debugging - its not necessarily a better option however if you need a great deal of flexibility and access to more varied apis that coldfusion can provide its becomes inevitable that you move. The more traditional comparison points - cost, speed of development, ease of maintainance dont apply here as if you have the talent inside the company and coldfusion can do everything you want it to then i woud stick with it. What j2ee primarily provides is access to legacy applications, a huge set of APIs, more room for tweaking for performance.

Thanks for picking up my question!
Actually, this project will be complete replacement of the old application. My team has the choice of using any techniques that make business sense. We have resources on both CF and Java, the hardware and software are also available, the question is which could make the life of project longer and perform well, the developing cycle is not a big concern either. If Java is the choice, what is the very point to present it to the leaders?
Just a reminder, Macromedia MX (CF MX) is run on the top of JRun(Macromedia’s Servlet container), CF MX will be complied (or interpreted) into Java Class on the backstage, Macromedia is promoting their product by claiming it is J2EE compliance with less coding.
Appreciate your input!
I agree. Here's the link:
