Question:  Are you using Netscape Navigator on the same maching to browse your page?
If so, make sure that it is running at a lower priority than Tomcat.  Netscape 4.x
rendering engine is so screwed, that it takes over the computer, and Tomcat is starved
for cycles.

Something is terribly wrong if you are experiencing slower times with C2 rather than
C1.  Is your DB connection setting right?  Are you using connection pooling, or creating
a new connection for every request?  Oracle has been known to be slow making connections.
How big is the resulting page?  What OS are you using?

There are lots of questions that would help us figure out why you aren't impressed with
C2.  It is disturbing that it would be slow for you, and so fast for me.
