Generally speaking,There's JDK on Linux,Windows And Solaris. And I wondered which is the best platform for JDK.It's seems that hotspot JVM can run better on Solaris than other two.But I am not sure of that

"Better" is a very subjective term, obviously. Do you want to consider performance per dollar, ease of use, reliability, scalability, tool support, development environments, ...
Sparc machines running Solaris obviously have excellent reliability: on the high-end servers there are even hot-swappable memory modules you can replace without taking the machine down. But for the same price, you can buy dozens of Intel/Linux boxes, and get much higher throughput overall.
Windows is Windows; nuff said.
I'm personally a big Linux fan; haven't had a Windows machine anywhere near my desk in nearly five years. We do most of our production work on Linux as well, although we do have some engineers with Sparc machines and a few Sparc LAN servers.

Java has a bad reputation at my company because everyone's desktop is a Sun Ultra5, so practially any java application runs like mud. Forget trying to use SunOne Studio or any IDE. People see it and recoil.
Linux, I don't know about, since I don't use. Since it's always touted as being fast and streamlined, maybe it runs well on a PC. Maybe sometime I'll revist Linux. I used it in college, but found it ridiculous to have to compile a program before installing it, and most of the window managers were buggy.
I have a P2 500MHz PC at work running Win2000. I wouldn't say by a long shot it is the most stable system around, but it can run java applications which I roughlyt estimate as being 10 times faster than any Sun workstation we have.
