Maybe It's a better idea to push such a question at a forum about Java programming.
Perl is a scripting language, which is completely different from Java. Perl is used to make mail-form scripts, guestbooks, forums, link-pages, dynamic contents etc. Mostly the main point of the program is handling with text, and text files to store the data (like a forum script).
Java can run at a server (so called servlets) I've read something about that in my Java book, but we're just learning to program Java, so I don't know anything more about it.
