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...
