Presentation by Dr. Cliff Click, Jr. Mention Java performance to a C hacker, or vice versa, and a flame war will surely ensue. The Web is full of broken benchmarks and crazy claims about Java and C performance. This session will aim to give a fair(er) comparison between the languages, striving to give a balanced view of each language's various strengths and weaknesses. It will also point out what's broken about many of the Java-versus-C Websites, so when you come across one, you can see the flaws and know that the Website isn't telling you what it (generally) claims to be telling you. (It's surely telling you "something," but almost just as surely is "not realistically" telling you why X is better than Y).
