Q: What should I install Oracle Java VM for? Other my plug-ins are not required this.
A: We write our plug-ins and tools in Java. Also we use open-source cross-platform wrapper jVSTwRapper, which is an adapter from our solutions to common plug-in formats (VST, AU, LADSPA).
For more details see here.
Q: I’ve heard that solutions written in Java have a performance problems in comparison with C/C++ solutions especially in such applications as audio plug-ins with physical modeling and complicated mathematical algorithms.
A: Do not trust the rumors!
Actually old versions of Java VM used to have some performance issues, but it have been fixed in the newer versions of VM. To avoid performance problem use up-to-date Oracle Java VM version always, please.
The difference of CPU usage between native implementation (C++) and Java implementation is just about 1%. And it is on a PII-450! On modern powerful computers this difference is even smaller.
