Java EE bad. Cobol great!

Quotes from Ars, on a study of bad coding practices in applications:
Java-EE applications [...] had the most problems on average, while Cobol and SAP's ABAP had the fewest.
So Cobol code is of higher quality than Java-EE.
Java EE's technical debt was pegged at $5.42 per line of code while Cobol impressed with a score of $1.26.
Cobol code is also cheaper to maintain.
Java was not the worst in terms of security, as .NET posted the worst security score and Cobol the best.
And more secure...

Time to brush up on our Cobol skills people! :-)
