Java's failure at shared hosting will contribute to its downfall

I did a google search for "shared java hosting", to check if somebody has recorded any wonderful experience he/she has had with java hosting on a shared environment. However I could not find anything except one blog by Stefan Mischook titled "Java hosting is kicking my ass!". He concludes by saying "Java is brittle in a shared environment, hard to configure and problematic - it sucks. I think this is a symptom of the Java community’s need to over-engineer everything and shows how Java is no longer suitable for small and medium size application development."

Part of what will probably be an ongoing series of postings about this topic.
