8.I plan to develop Web services in: a. Java (5 points) b. .Net (5 points) c. other (such as Macromedia ColdFusion, Ruby on Rails, Ajax) (3 points)
a. Java (5 points)
b. .Net (5 points)
c. other (such as Macromedia ColdFusion, Ruby on Rails, Ajax) (3 points)
Can anyone explain why ColdFusion based Web Services are worth less points than those written in Java, when ColdFusion Web Services are Java (built on top of Apache Axis)?

The reason programming Web Services in ColdFusion might be less effective than programming them in Java may not be technical in nature.
All the other ColdFusion programmers I work with hate Web Services because they use ColdFusion to bang out quick web applications and don't like to spend time on architectures. In my experience, this menality is common to all ColdFusion programmers. Which is fine for lots of web applications.
When I work with Java programmers, they are much more receptive, or even proactive, to design architectures.
So relying on ColdFusion PROGRAMMERS is what would greatly inhibit efforts toward SOA because typical CF programmers don't care about A, whereas Java and/or .NET programmers typically do.
Just my $0.02

CIO Magazine Misses The Point On ColdFusion Based Web Services. CIO Magazine ran a story on Web Services last month. The story is presented as a quiz entitled 'Are You Ready For Web Services?' with 12 multiple choice questions, each with answers worth from 0 to 5 points. I have issues with a few of the supposed right answers, but question 8 really irks me: 8.I plan to develop Web services in:
