What is the command line option "-Xquickstart" suppose to do for me? I can't find much documetation. "used for improving startup time of some Java applications" is all I can find. Thanks.

Please ignore post, I have no idea what I am talking about.

pls. visit following link

it contains
-Xquickstart: You can use this value for initial compilation at a lower optimization level than in default mode, and later, depending on sampling results, you can recompile to the level of the initial compile in default mode. Use quickstart for applications where early moderate speed is more important than longrun throughput. In some debug scenarios, test harnesses and short-running tools, it is possible to realize startup time gains between 15-20%. -DCOPT_NQREACHDEF can improve startup by an additional 15%.
