Erlang vs. Java

Folks,

There's a comment at http://wagerlabs.com/tech/2005/09/erlang-vs- 
java.html that asks very interesting questions on how you would do  
things in Erlang vs. Java, the type of questions that Erlang lovers  
here appreciate. The poster is obviously Java-biased. Please help me  
set the record straight!

Sample quote:

 > 3. If I have an existing class that describes a binary packet
 > and I need to build something similar, it's a prime target
 > for refactoring into a base/derived class. Of course, the unit tests
 > that I have setup (discussed below) will cover my refactoring
 > and make sure that by doing so I don't break the existing code.

     Thanks, Joel
