I know absolutely nada about Java... should I fuggittaboutit?

The reasons I am even considering OS X / WebObjects are as follows:

First, because I am led to believe that it would be the optimal way 
for me to create a solution to a problem I am having with a lasso/fmp 
thing I am working on, wherein I wish to do a 'deep link', but only 
on parts of the originating source-code.  Confused and interested, or 
suspect you may have an alternate solution?  I can explain further if 
you wish.

Second, I am in the late preliminary stages of decding whether or not 
to set up a standalone webserver... and it would seem to me that this 
would be a good direction to take to create some separation between 
myself and 'the rest of the pack'.

Third, this is 'best of class' technology, and getting a handle on it 
can only mean GoodThings for my business, if it doesn't kill me first 

And finally, I am a Mac junkie, and this stuff is The New Mac, right?
