It depends on what you are doing.

I love php for web site development. But I would never turn my back on Java.

There are plenty of reasons to hate any language, but there are a larger number of reasons to love Java.

Cheers!

There is no general "best". You question is something akin to "What food item tastes best" or "What is the best car". There is no universal answer to either question.

It depends on the project, programmers, hardware, etc.

If your team has to do a web based project, and a few people know PHP or Python, but all know Java. Guess which language is probably the best in this situation.

There are projects that Java can not be used for. Small embedded devices mainly. There is not enough processor power and/or memory to do it, not to mention the lack of a JVM.

There are projects I would hate to do, in say C.

Java is not the best language. Neither is Python, C, C++, Perl, Eiffel, Smalltalk, ML, Haskell, ...

They all have their strengths, weaknesses and design flaws.
