I'm hoping someone can shed some light on a bug I've encountered. Oracle has recently (for Java 7), started supporting it's own version for Mac OS X. Since I moved to Oracle's Java 7 from Apple's Java 6, the frame rate performance drops to 0 or 1 fps. We're utilizing Java2D with hardware acceleration.

I've tweaked all sorts of java properties to try to enhance the 2D performance, but it doesn't seem to be helping. Anyone encounter this same problem or have any additional ideas?

Additional thought, I've tried this on other Macs and receive the same results. On my windows box, I get around 1000 fps.

Currently running: OS X 10.8.2 with Retina.
