Hello Don !

You didn't mention which Solaris
version  ( uname -a ) you have ..?

But in generell I would
prefer to use jdk 1.2.2
together with the Solaris hotspot ..
or jdk 1.3 beta with the client side
hotspot which has a larger
startup time .. but is then
the really fastest jdk on the Solaris
box ..

But you need certains OS patches before
you can use the HotSpot engines ..

But this is meant more in generell ..
I don't tried it so far with VisAD ..

Good luck !
