Server-side Java is still maligned as being too slow and too bloated for high performance web applications. FeedBurner has shown that you can have a large, feature-rich Java application (built around MySQL, of course) and still scale out to large deployments.
The FeedBurner team discusses strategies for building scalable, high-performance web applications using MySQL with Java and open source Java frameworks.
Also covered are schema design and horizontal scalability (both at the MySQL level as well as at the Java app server level).
