The biggest problem with Erlang is that Java used to be fun but after 
learning Erlang things changed. I'm still forced to use Java and PHP at 
work and can use Erlang only for my own projects.

Multithreading in Java is a challenge and if you take couple external 
libraries then you probably have a really big challenge. Big in this 
context means close to impossible :)
