There is no inherent reason why Java is fit to create a web-application
and pascal is not :-)
(in fact, I don't think Java is fit to create any application, but
that is another discussion, which is not on it's place here ;) )

code in pascal, and then send it to the browser.
This is why I think Morfik has the right approach: They allow you to code
both server and client-side in Pascal (or VB). The server code is compiled
to a super-fast server binary, the client code is sent to the browser as
(but Morfik was the first to do it, and they hold the patent on this technique).
My (long-term) plan is to make this possible in Lazarus. The server-side
is more or less covered, the basic blocks are in place. The client-side
needs still some work, of course.
