You weren't being generous, you were being rude. He said he thinks it would take 2 weeks to rewrite the program in Java. Now you may or may not know Java better than he does, but I'm damn sure he knows the program better than you do. Either you believe him or you don't. If you don't believe him then you should ignore the entire post. If you do believe him then you should take his estimate at face value and work with that.

If he isn't very familiar with Java, then his estimate at how long it would take in Java is suspect.
I have a lot of recent experience building *exactly* that type of tool, and I would think that *my* estimate might be a little more accurate.
But who knows? I could be wrong. I'm just giving you my best guess. You disagree with pretty much anything I say anyway, so I imagine that this discussion is moot?
