I'm running applications on Solaris 8 machine accessed using XWindows. There is slow network connection to the machine. Native applications are running slowly, but the performance is aceptable. Java GUI applications are extremely slow.
How can I make it appear faster ?

What kind of java applications are running slowly?
I suspect the best candidate for performance optimization would be to reduce the number of repaints, and to make the regions of repaint as small as possible.
The soul is dyed the color of its thoughts. Think only on those things that are in line with your principles and can bear the light of day. The content of your character is your choice. Day by day, what you do is who you become. Your integrity is your destiny - it is the light that guides your way. - Heraclitus
