Re: Benchmark of 6 XML parsers on Solaris
>1. Java is faster than Perl/Python for _all_ test cases there are substantial variations in VM performance across vendor and OS; see: http://www.javaworld.com/jw-03-1999/jw-03-volanomark.html?022399ibd Also, for reasons that I can only attribute to laziness on the part of implementors, java VMs seem to take a ridiculous amount of time to start up. Beats me what they are doing. This is particularly striking given that java was first promulgated for browser applets. Judging from the level of discussion on various other lists I'm on, none of java, perl, or python were designed with lightweight, accurate, and meaningful profiling of their own run time built in. So people interested in improving performance are left pouring over the leavings of gprof. Confronted with that, one quickly concludes it isn't necessary work, because in the real world one is always waiting on network or disk anyway :). -mda xml-dev: A list for W3C XML Developers.
