I have read this benchmark results -- http://osnews.com/img/5602/results.jpg
-- and java 1.4 performance is very bad in trigonometrical operations , and worse is that 1.4 is slower than JAVA 1.3 (in this topic specially).
Is it possible that the program developed for running the benchmark don`t use appropiate programming techniques for JAVA 1.4 or something like that, because it`s neither logical nor clear that a new version o JAVA be slower than 1.3.
Source of the benchmark could be found in -- http://www.ocf.berkeley.edu/~cowell/research/benchmark/code/
Thanks a lot for you all !!
