How many languages were used to build that?

I spent two days tracking a nasty bug in PRM, a performance monitoring module in Sun Management Center, and wondered how many languages were involved with creating the product.

So far, I've found the following:

  1. java
  2. tcl
  3. sh
  4. awk
  5. sql
  6. perl
  7. C/C++
  8. XML
  9. ASN-1
Are there any missing?

How many languages can you use for product development without things getting too complex?
Some of the languages have a specific focus, like sql for db queries, sh for system adminstration (start/stop components), and the data description languages XML for SMF and ASN-1 for describing snmp mibs.
