Ruby, Python, JavaScript, Lua, Java, C++ benchmark

Simple benchmark but with interesting comments here:

Some of the conclusions are:
  • Java interpreter is very good
  • Java JIT is as fast as C++
  • Ruby, JavaScript, Python are of similar order of magnitude speed, Ruby the slowest.
It would have been interesting to benchmark interpreted languages for the JVM.

Now for most projects, architecture, not language is key in achieving good performance.
