    Is Java Suitable?


    I am trying to write an application which has to download files from two server
    at an interval of one minute and 5 minutes respectively.These files are available
    for download using http download at one site and ftp download at another
    site .After downloading these files, data is to be extracted from these files
    and entered into a database server .It has to generate three text files also
    which will be used by a ticker applet to display data on the website.
    This application is running on a different server and the generated files
    will be uploaded to he webserver as soon as they are generated.
    Now my question is :-

    Is java a suitable language in terms of efficiency and throughput for this
    application?

    My problem is that i do know VC++ and C++ but i am not very comfortable with
    these languages and would like to avoid using them if the efficiency of java
    application is feasible. Please advice .
    Thanx in advance.

    It shouldn't be any problem. I would advise against using older slower computers.
    You will have to test to find bottlenecks. BTW, Java is being used by Wall
    Street Companies and they need excellent throughput.

    hi,
    Thanx for your reply. What do u mean by older computers ? .My server's configuration
    is Dual processor Intel Server , 1 GB Ram, 20 GB hdd etc. This is the configuration
    of the server where this service is going to run. Is this configuration ok?.
    Please advice.
    Thanx again.

    A lot of people don't keep their hardware up to date(i.e. P2 64mb) and don't
    understand why software is slow.

    I would think that your configuration would be fine. But you will not know
    until you test. It would be that way with any configuration. The advantage
    of Java is that if you run into performance problems - present or future
    - you can solve them by moving to another platform (Unix, AS400, Mainframe)
    with minimal effort.
