Java "Java is a programming language that allows developers to write once and deploy everywhere - from high-end gaming desktops to smartphones. Its OS-agnostic and widespread nature is one of its strongest selling points, but one area where it can fall flat is performance. Generally, Java applications are not going to perform as well as native applications written for a specific OS. However, thanks to Project Sumatra that performance gap may soon become less of an issue."

Performance is not definitive

Java performance is not an issue, it's better than most languanges(there's a ton of benchmarks). The issue is JNI performance and deterministic(aka real-time) performance.

If it feels slow and reacts slow...then it is slow.
Pretty much every single Java application I've ever used, server as well as desktop, pretty much used up all the RAM and ran like molasses.

Benchmarks are like asshole; everybody has one and you'll be happier caring only about your own.
