 > Research appreciated, Thank you! Maybe things have changed since my
 horrible experiences with java sucking.

 I've been developing with Java full-time, as part of my career, for more
 than two decades. And while JVM performance wasn't all that impressive in
 the first few years - prior to Sun and the industry aggressively pursuing
 just-in-time compilation  - that hasn't been the case since the late

 Indeed, Java performance not only matches that of native C/C++ code, but
 can even exceed it in some cases. (It takes a brief period for the JVM/JIT
 to warmup, after a cold start. But once that's done, hold onto your hat!)

 And the truly elegant thing about this design, is that the code doesn't
 have to be recompiled: Since it's pcode - with native compilation,
 optimization, etc, all done at runtime - it improves with every new JVM

 The model works so well, that it's used extensively throughout the
 industry, for many many other languages and stacks. And indeed, Microsoft
 also went all-in on this paradigm, with C# and .NET as a whole.

 So while you may have been less-than-impressed 20 years ago, things have
 changed significantly since.
