Everyone wants a magic bullet.  If you're suffering under a mass of
unstructured php code, the structure and discipline of Java probably
sounds like just the thing you need.  If you're stuck with a Java
behemoth with labyrinthine class structures and elaborate patterns
that no one can follow anymore, the git-er-done attitude of PHP
probably sounds pretty appealing.  They're polar opposites, and both
extremely popular, so it's not surprising to me that a bunch of people
want to switch from one to the other.  In most cases it's probably a
mistake, though.
