Hi, I have an older applet that uses AWT. When using 1.4.2 Plug-in performance is great. When we use the 1.6.0 (possibly 1.5.0 too) plug-in performance goes down tubes. Performance decreases as we add components to a panel container. Each successive Add() gets increasingly longer. I have created a test applet that can be used to exhibit the problem and will attach as an additional post because I don't think it will fit in the alotted space.
Timings of add() method:
Plug-in 1.4.2 (Times in ms)
Plug-in 1.6.0 (Times in ms)
These timings are considerably different and are unacceptable. I need a fix or a workaround that will address this problem. Moving to Swing at this point will involve a great deal of effort and money of which there are neither.
Any assistance would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.
