This is my opinion: all other things being equal, a well-written program coded in C++ is probably going to be more cpu and memory effecient than the same program in Java.

My bottom line is that nothing beats measurement. Don't believe anybody who posts here, including me. If your Java code is too slow, and you know there's no way to write it faster in Java, then go ahead and try to do better in native code. You may find out that you can -- but you may find out that you can't.
