General Development This article discusses a small-scale benchmark test run on nine modern computer languages or variants: Java 1.3.1, Java 1.4.2, C compiled with gcc 3.3.1, Python 2.3.2, Python compiled with Psyco 1.1.1, and the four languages supported by Microsoft's Visual Studio .NET 2003 development environment: Visual Basic, Visual C#, Visual C++, and Visual J#. The benchmark tests arithmetic and trigonometric functions using a variety of data types, and also tests simple file I/O. All tests took place on a Pentium 4-based computer running Windows XP. Update: Delphi version of the benchmark here.

gcj-3.3 -O2 --main=Benchmark Benchmark.java
Int arithmetic elapsed time: 6220 ms
Double arithmetic elapsed time: 5914 ms
Long arithmetic elapsed time: 16485 ms
Trig elapsed time: 26012 ms
IO elapsed time: 10229 ms

Int, Double and Long at the same speed of GCC, io en trig a lot slower than GCC.
