There is no reason for not using the server VM in the Graphics area. The server VM is faster but the GC is also laysier, so expect a faster growing heap.
We anyway keep an eye on it to have extremely little GC in Xith3D. So that won't be a problem.
in java 7 both VMs are merged anyway.
Cool. That's an interesting information.
server VM take more time to start, client VM start faster , in another hand client VM run a little slower than server VM (not sure).
I have run tests to compare them both and the additional startup time is not too important, since it is not very big.
Thanks a lot guys, for these information. It will be of great help for my future decisions. If there's anybody else having useful information about this, don't hesitate to post
