[Mono-list] JVM performance: JVM as a basis for CLR

Do you have a URL for that?  (All I've been able to find is an older version
of the same comparison which they used to show that COM+'s speed).  I'd be
interested to see what they used for the "J2EE" implementations.  See, to
me, the most fair comparison to ASP.NET is JSP running on Jakarta, the Java
Servlet reference implementation, both running against the same web server:
IIS.  However, I don't really picture them using that in a test.  I'd be
interested to see if they did that or went all the way to the JWS (Java Web
Server) that Sun sells for their comparison, which is a 100% Java web server
and isn't known for breakneck speed.

If they have the actual code for the ASP.NET version available, it would
likely be a simple port back to Jakarta.  I might do some playing with it
next week.
