Are there any alternative JVMs for Solaris platform?
Read reviews about IBM's JVM that runs pretty fast. What's the performance difference between IBM's JVM on Linux and Sun's on Solaris?

You can try JRockit:
It's been bought by BEA and now they're giving it away for free! Whee! It also has lots of dials to plays with, like selecting one of several different garbage collectors.
It is sorta covered in the JavaRanch Style Guide.
