It's plenty fast on MY Suns. Dunno what you're talking about. It's
likely a crappily written app...nearly every commercial Java app I've
seen has been slower than pissing tar, but somehow the ones we write at
work, and the stuff I write here, all run really fast. (and I'm not
even an O.O. guy, and as such I write crappy Java code!)
But anyway, if you think about your past work in embedded systems,
I'm sure you're recall that execution performance is almost never a
concern in those types of applications.
