In many shops, perhaps yours too, you are relying on volunteers.  The
problem is they suddenly disappear on you leaving no notes.   In that
situation, you want to push for as vanilla technology as possible so
that you have maximal chance the next guy will already be familiar
with the tools.

From that point of view Java is a nice choice, as is MySQL and JSP.
