You can always do it slow if you don't design properly. A former customer
saved a lot hardware and maintenance cost by migrating from a perl based
publishing system to a Java based one. Less hardware, better performance and
more functionality. ;-) The old perl system had been developed and maintained
over a 4 year period - the initial development of the new Java based system
took about 9 months.
