Personally, the best part of it for me is that it was written in Java.

One positive event after hearing endless bashing of java almost everywhere.

Wow. I wish I could invent something that would add $350,000 to my bank account every single day. And I wouldn't care if I'd have to write it in Java or any other programming language!

I'd be happy if I wrote something that added $3,500 a day.

He is a very experienced programmer. I'm sure he must have known it
Interesting he used Lightweight Java Game Library which is not as bad as Spring or hibernate.
