I'm noticing that when I run Java Web start applications, that there is a significant difference in performance of aspects of the program when I run offline compared to when the host to the application is accessible. So, if I click on a Swing button to launch a dialog, for example, the first time I do this, it is really, really slow. On subsequent calls it speeds up. However, when the application host is accessible, the performance is acceptable - even on the first button press. None of the application functionality actually accesses the host other than to download the application itself.
I'm running 1.6 update 4.
So, why the delay when offline? Is it to do with the Java Cache? A look up on jar signing? What?
