Subject: Re: FLASH: Java, VBScript or JavaScript? which is faster?

I'd bet IIS processes VBScript faster, just because it is Microsoft's
language. Of course you'll have to test that out...from page to page
one language can be interpreted faster than another because of a
number of factors, mostly centered around what the interpreter
developer thought should be optimized and what shouldn't.

For real speed you should try a compiled language rather than an
interpreted one. For really great performance without sacrificing
maintainability, there is also the possibility of using java (as your
mentioned). JSPs, servlets and javabeans are a great 'semi-compiled'
method, so they run pretty fast... There's a comparison between ASP
and JSP performance here:
