Hello. My name is Mary.
I have been assigned the task of writing an in-depth paper on "Why JAVA is
NOT cross-platform" for a Graduate course in Java programming (although its
still an intro to Java course).

I have found signifcant literature on how it IS cross-platform with the exception
of performance issues and licensing issues. What I am interested in is finding
out more about the technical modifications that must be made in the source
code for optimal performance on various platforms.
Any input? Thanks.
