I think the reason why is because SF is approaching application development as a form-based and database-driven exercise.
What I donâ€™t get is why Salesforce.com chose to create a strongly typed, compiled language. Okay, I do get it, because they hint at their reasoning in their introduction to Apex presentation. They want Apex to be safe. Itâ€™s a multi-tenant implementation, after all. But hey, the fact that their database and implementation is multi-tenant should be transparent to the end users. If my company runs Salesforce, so what if the company next door does too?
