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.

I ran the benchmark with jdk 1.5 alpha compiler

Box is an Athlon XP 1700, Windows 2k 512M memory

int math 9796
double math 14406
long math 19735
trig 53890
i/o 6266
total benchmark 104094

Time in milliseconds, and I ran with -server option compiled with debug info off
