i tried getting HSQL running today (on i386/2.1-stable). it seems to run 
fine, but now and then a client which connects to the DBMS and hands 
over some work (table select or whatever), it gets stuck. after a minute 
or so the server answers. in the meanwhile the machine runs like a 
charm. i used sun-jre15/sun-jdk15 for this.

any hints very appreciated as well as general reports on running java on 

(the guy installing an art gallery manegement system, which uses HSQL on 
the i386 machine, said that it's up to the java implementation of NetBSD 
that it runs crappy. don't believe him as i have a tomcat installation 
running quite happily...)
