Those scores seems to be produced by HotSpot Client VM.
If HotSpot Server VM was used, the score of Sun J2SDK 1.4.2
will be higher than 7500.
JNode is a great effort, I respect it and performance will not be
the primary target of the harmony. But Sun's runtime performes better
than the page shows.

Sorry for being off-topic a little.

I found One of benchmark programs, Sieve.java in jnodesources-0.2.0.tar.gz
looks same as Sieve.java distributed with TYA (*1).
The Sieve.java has been distributed with TYA since 1999 at least,
but one with JNode 0.2.0 has a line "Copyright (C) 2005 JNode.org".
Is Sieve.java in public domain?

(*1) TYA: a JIT compiler, http://sax.sax.de/~adlibit/
