Yes. Here's where it gets fun: Standard JRockit is based on class
libraries that we license from Sun. This is not the case with J9 if I
understand correctly. So if you run the JRockit JVM vs the JRockit eval
VM for Harmony and compare the performance, you will have a reasonable
estimate on the performance of the *class library*. Not entirely
apples-to-apples, of course, but it's a start.
