Hello, are there any technical considerations related on Swing / Awt applications running on Windows 95 platform we should consider at the moment of selecting the JRE Version (either 1.4.2 or 1.5.0) and the JVM options to optimize de performance in the application?.

Well, yes.

As far as I know the latest java version which (officially) supported Win95 was java-1.3 which did all its rendering in software and is a lot slower compared to 1.4.2 or 1.5 when it comes down to Swing performance.
