RE: Saxon for windows?
Hi George, Your point is valid. In my performance test application it's more than evident. But that's the same for .NET - if the .NET application runs for the first time the same happens or worse. The application I developed shows those delays quite clear, and in the performance tests I've done I was ignoring at least first or even second time runs. It might well be an advantage to use precompiling for .NET in this case, but still then I'd seriously look into performance in each and every deploy.

What about the java start up time? You will add that at each run. And if you run the transformation only once then I think you will not get the best of Java either - I always hear that if you want to measure how much time a stylesheet takes for processing you should not look at the times of the first runs. My 2 cents...
