Hi David,
See this suggestion:

for what I think you could do to help.

COBOL, C, and C++ people still believe that Java is not fast enough for any apps that do serious number crunching, like anything financial. Running that telco app in COBOL, C, C++, and Java, I found that the Java version that uses BigDecimal was several times slower than the others.

I recently met with a company that was considering converting their 15 million line COBOL app to Java. In the end, they just didn't believe that Java was fast enough, and after running this simple benchmark, I had to agree.

Until Java can at least keep up on a benchmark like this (just adding up a million numbers, correct to many decimal places), it won't be taken seriously by the COBOL crowd or the high-performance C/C++ crowd.
