Hi, Is there anyway we can see the underlying implementation for access specifiers & modifiers like "private, public, protected, native, synchronized, abstract etc..". For classes and methods we have API and can see how Sun/Oracle implemented.

If you really want to, I guess you can get the source code for the JVM from open source. Google for "openjdk".

Be warn though, the code is complex. And written mostly in C and C++.

But does that mean that any program written in Java will be slower than the same one written in C++?

(Can't believe Java was written using the shitty C++)

Using the same argument, you can say that assembly language is slower than C, because most assemblers are written in C.... well, assembly is arguable slower, but for a different reason

Remember, Java not only has a compiler (that optimizes), but the JVM has multiple just-in-time compilers that optimizes too. Comparing the speed of two compiled programs based on the language used for the compiler is not very valid.

Having worked with C++ for many years, and still working with it, I will be the first to say that the language has many warts.... but it is far from a "shitty" language". In fact, I would still list it as one of my favorites.
