Java vs Python

Speed :

Java wins due to JVM optimisations / JIT compilation.

Java supports concurrency. The Global Interpreter Lock (GIL) in the dominant implementation of Python, CPython, stands in the way of such scaling.

Neither suited for high performance

Agility :

Java wins with JUnit and its association with test-driven development (TDD). Its strong typing leads to more consistent refactoring support in IDEs.

Python has a more dynamic type system and has test features in its standard library.
