do your results look like with one thread? Are you seeing some locking/concurrency issue?

* There is so much variance between runs that something is odd here. What are you doing between
runs to clear the cache? How are you dealing with variability at the database? Is the database
running on another server which is unloaded and isn't itself interfering with the results?

* The huge variability makes me think that memory pressures might be important. Are you seeing
the JVM garbage collect during the middle of some runs? Can you run jstat and see if that
is interfering.

* Are you able to pick the worst case (update) and time the various parts: create context,
database UPDATE, commit finished... In your tests are you timing creating the context or is
that outside the timing loop?

* can you compare the SQL generated by the two ORMs and see if there is any difference at
the database level

Just a few thoughts....
