Yep, that is why I asked if you quoted based on your perception or from
some benchmarks. Most of the folks have the perception that since Java
is interpreted, it has to be slower than C++.

Probably the same time as the C++ compiler, may be faster. Did not time it.

Nope didn't try it. Coz these small tests are not very useful. That is
why I inquired about links to official benchmarks. I used to have
bookmarks to some benchmarks but not anymore.

Not being a C++ person, I have no idea what that means :)
