Re: JAMA performance vs C++ performance?
On PC platforms, Java can get quite close and even outperform
optimized C. (The difference is due mainly to compiler implementations.)
See SciMark (www.math.nist.gov/scimark), which compares performance
results of common computational kernels in Java and C on various platforms.
Also, there was an article in the March/April issue of "Computing in
Science and Engineering" magazine (Vol. 3, No. 2, pp 18-24) that discussed
Java performance for numerical computing.
