Super. Glad we got it right.

When optimizing other Java products, Activated has learned that Java
performance can be quite sensitive to both the version and the provider of
the JVM. Things that run quickly in a Sun JVM may lag a little in the IBM
version and vice versa. There can also be significant and non-deterministic
variations due to JIT behavior - we run our tests 5x and take the average to
mitigate these effects.
In the end - it would be great if there was a standard set of xml, xsl,
platform, and JVM combinations that could be used for performance
