Many unix (at least) programs are actually a shell script front end as distributed, and the fact that the script runs java internally is not really an issue. does it matter that "firefox" is a shell script that sets up a pile of env variables before calling an executable? It is an issue if you loop over 1000 files of course as starting the jvm a thousand times isn't always a good idea, in which case you need to look into java api's but, especially for beginners, I don't think it's an issue at all. I use saxon most days and hardly ever use it from a java programming api. David
