Really? You can compare Java and C++. The same difference is between Java and Python.
At this time Python-based web wrameworks not so popular as Java-based. Java can be better for large projects which need to be supported for a long time after development. It can be difficult to support tricky Python code which was created in functional style.
BTW, you can compare Erlang, ARC, Schema and Python and ask yourself this question. Why you should to use Python instead of These languages? :-)
