Hi Martin,

Can you give more information on what you are doing? The communication 
(peer queues) between Java and a OutOfProcessEclipse is via sockets, 
which is relatively slow and also seem to have a relatively large 
overhead for each transmission of data. The EmbeddedEclipse communicates
via in-memory queues, and is much more efficient.

ECLiPSe itself should run at the same speed for both, as long as you are 
running ECLiPSe code and not sending/receiving data via the queues.

Cheers,

Kish
