Ask Slashdot - Node.js vs JEE/C/C++/.NET in the Enterprise

theshowmecanuck (703852) writes "I'm working at a small to medium sized company that creates software for mobile devices, but came from a 'large enterprise' world before. I see node.js being used increasingly in smaller companies (including ours) or in web/mobile related software. Meanwhile we see languages like Java/JEE, C/C++, and .NET continue to be used for medium to large enterprise corporate software. Compared to the status quo in the enterprise (JEE/C/C++/.NET ... and yes, maybe even COBOL) maybe Slashdotters can chime in on how they see Node.js in this role. I'm thinking of things like complexity of business logic (dependencies, workflows, linear processes, etc), transaction support (for processes in general and database support), messaging services, etc. etc. etc. Also what is the state of Node.js in terms of paradigms like application containers, where much of the 'plumbing' is already set up for your (one of the main benefits of JEE application containers). But there is also the question of maintainability, deployment, and ongoing operations. What say you, Slashdot?"

I say this is a stupid question.

If you are tied to JEE and you need some JS, there has been a solution available for 14 years or so. It is called Rhino and has been part of the standard API for a while now.
