If you're writing software FOR THE WEB, you might as well use some language that was created
just for that purpose, scripting or otherwise. Java is a programming language, so is C and
C++. C is still the most popular language for serious programming. Now would you use C when
writing a web application?

My take on this is.. use whatever works for you, because no one language will be appropriate
for all needs. There is no reason to put one language or the other down.
