For performance Golang 1.5 is a beast. Yes, earlier version where slow(er) of ron par w/ Java. But 1.5 is just blisteringly fast.

The Golang maintainers put for a conscience effort to keep performance high. That means every new release will have perf. enhancements. I can not speak to Oracles drive for performance within Java.

Opinion: If I have to choice between golang and java/spring; Golang would win out. Especially for HTTP/S API's.

For the reader who reading on benchmarksgame list, it's more accurate to benchmark on your own machine, don't take the results on the site because it's not exactly what you assume it is.
