And it's still wrong. There are business cases for java and others for PHP. Both are valid languages, but none is superior to the other.

Btw: Would you show me your goto java solution which doesn't need dependencies, takes an json-url, gets the content and pretty prints its content in a file?

$content = file_get_contents(URL);
$jsonObject = json_decode($content);
$beautifulJsonString = json_encode($jsonObject, JSON_PRETTY_PRINT);
file_put_contents(FILENAME, $beautifulJsonString);

15s - I really want to see doing that in Java :D.
