Java vs. PHP CMS/Portals

there’s a long but interesting discussion going on about content management systems at The Server Side. See:

Ask TSS: Do any Java CMS/Portals match the PHP ones?

There’s a lot of references to useful tools (both PHP and Java). Cos of the sheer number of different tools it’s all the more important to have a complete list of requirements.

As usual, these kind of exchanges tend to turn somewhat “religious” whenever developers are around.

Couple of commenters seem to feel that Java is better for large sites:

Use java-solutions @work where longlasting and big software is an issue and use php-solutions @home or in shorttime and smaller projects.

What is your opinion?
What tools offer the best usability for the content guys?
