I'm new in the Java world, I'm still learning the basics about AWT and Swing. My question
is about the java speed, I've tried some shareware IDE's (included Java Forte) and all of them
are extremely slow.
That's why I'm wondering if java is used for "real" applications or is just used to
make applets. And if some of you really use java to build applications, Is there any way to
make the execution of a .class or .jar file faster comperable to the speed of an executable build
in C++ or VB?
