Java VMs


Hi peoples,

I know of three (Sun's, Blackdown's, and IBM's) JVMs for linux. Which one is best at what? Which one is faster, more stable? I've tryed balckdown's but I crashed my computer so I want to know before I pick one to use.

p.s. I have heard that sun is one great big ball of sh**

Thank you peoples and yes I know I put peoples not people

actually i can't tell you which is better, but i like blackdown most, it was the easiest to install, and the only one which worked with firebird/mozilla without problems..

I asked the same question a while back and was referred to:
http://java.com/en/index.jsp

from which I downloaded a file called: j2re-1_4_2_01-linux-i586-rpm.bin

I installed it and put the following link in the plugins subdirectory where my browser is installed:
ln -s /usr/java/j2re1.4.2_01/plugin/i386/ns610-gcc32/libjavaplugin_oji.so

And it works fine for me, although I'm not a particularly heavy user of java based web-sites.

I'd suggest grabbing them all ... it's not
a big deal in Linux to have them installed
in parallel, that way you can test their
compatibility and performance.

All you need to do is create three scripts
that will set the path's appropriately, and
then start the jvm you want with the program
you need to run.

Please publish your findings!


Cheers,
Tink

Suns: Slow is hell
Blackdowns: A little bit better
IBMs: impresive
