In 2021 comparing languages especially in the arena that Java plays is not comparing the right thing. I will include kotlin in Java and any other jvm language that plays well with Java. The reason being is all of the quote on quote microservice Frameworks all of the libraries all of the years of development all of the companies using it to include Enterprises and companies like Netflix to include the humongous community. That is what any language has to overcome. I don't see any language of run time doing that or even coming close. I used lots of different languages over my 26 years of my professional software development experience
