Hi everyone

I am more of a pointy hair boss crossed with Ratbert then a pure programmer so feel free to make a Dilbert joke if my question is stupid :-) . Have an idea for a desktop application that needs to connect to many external web services at the same time, handle both REST and SOAP and take some instructions from my own service in the cloud. This network oriented app made me think extra of Erlang.

However it is said that premature optimization is the root to all evil in software development. My impression is that Erlang is much better at this type of work then Java. But there isn't (of what I know) any real all in one Erlang solution comparable to Red Hat JBoss. So I wonder: Would it be wise to include Erlang in an early phase (server side and app side) so I have a solid foundation or would it be premature optimization? I value tech support and if something goes south I would like that the support staff have an understanding of the whole system.

I hope I make sense and I am very greatful for all help I can get.
