welcome to Java. The database engine is pure Java. and if you use the
Report Builder extension, it's Java, too.

I believe you use gij as Java (Free Software Foundation" SDK in Tools ->
Options -> Java) without having -gcj installed. gij has no Java JIT
compiler, so it's slower than Suns Java for example *unless* you install
-gcj, at which time you get the speedup which -gcj provides by making
it possible to make the jars also available as native compiled code,
which obviously is fast.
> If you want to, I can make the database available.
I don't think I need it, I think you want to install -gcj. If that
doesn't work for you sufficiently - well, as said: welcome to Java.
