Well, that's the point. Command line applications in Java suck, admitted
- for one because of the JVM startup and on the other hand because of
the JIT, though you can of course run your JVM with -server to get even
longer startup times ...
But if you run it with -server or after the JIT kicks in I have not
experienced much of a difference, and in some cases the Java code
actually runs faster.
