I haven't had trouble with small amounts of Java, the trouble is with 3-5MB
of Java byte code. The main problem is that all of that Java code creates
and destroys millions of objects and I spend 30% or more of the CPU in
garbage collection. And while Java is garbage collecting it destroys the
response time of the site. Hotspot ran about 10-15% faster than the Windows

Another part of getting the performance gain was switching from a two tier
model of Apache + JServ/Tomcat to a single tier of Apache with DLL module.

My general feeling is that HotSpot can perform excellently in small to
medium sized systems but the C compiler has it beat in large ones. Maybe
RenderX can gives up some performance comparisons between the various
versions of their engine.
