Default Disadvangaes of Java

Java's ability for producing portable, architecturally neutral code is desirable, the method used to create this code is inefficient. As mentioned above, once Java code is compiled into byte code, an interpreter called a Java Virtual Machine, specifically designed for a computer architecture, runs the program. Why is this a problem? "Java, being an interpreted system, is currently an order of magnitude slower than C." (Just Java, 302). Unlike natively compiled code, which is a series of instructions that correlate directly to a microprocessors instruction set, an interpreter must first translate the Java binary code into the equivalent microprocessor instruction. Obviously, this translation takes some amount of time and, no matter how small a length of time this is, it is inherently slower than performing the same operation in machine code.
