RE: XSLTMark 1.2.1, first comprehensive XSLT benchmark
> Standard remark: Java performance depends on JDK. Have you considered > moving from 1.1.8 to 1.3? Should make quite a difference. Absolutely. Allow me to republish some figures I put out on the Saxon mailing list yesterday. These are all running the same transformation, but in different environments, and the total time varies by a factor of 15. These tests are with a fairly large source file: I originally thought there must be a problem with the Microsoft JVM results, but I've been investigating further, and I think it's simply that the JDK 1.3 hotspot compiler really gets a chance to cruise along if you give it a big chunk of work to do. Here are some execution times for a 2.75Mb source file (all times in ms) Machine A (Pentium III, Win 98, 128 Mb) Saxon 6.0, SUN JDK 1.3 10050 Saxon 5.5.1, SUN JDK 1.3 20160 Saxon 6.0, MS Java 38400 Saxon 5.5.1, MS Java 62780 xt, MS Java 21000 approx Machine B (Pentium II, Win NT, 64 Mb) Saxon 6.0, SUN JDK 1.3 23694 Saxon 5.5.1, SUN JDK 1.3 49701 Saxon 6.0, MS Java 95778 Saxon 5.5.1, MS Java 148173 xt, MS Java 115000 approx I will try to do find time to do my own tests with the XSLTMark benchmark, though I don't want to start getting into a "faster than thou" slanging match with anyone.
