[xmlblaster] Performances

First of all, congratulations for bringing such a nice development to the open source community.

In order to evaluate the performance of xmlblaster in replacement of an off-the-shelf product, I modified the HelloWorld.c demo into a simple C client generating publishOneway as fast as it can . 
The client only takes 1.2% of the CPU time on an old HP-UX machine (PA8500 2.0 300 Mhz).

Here is an extract of the client:
   for (i=0; i< 10000; i++)
        xb->publishOneway(xb, &msgUnitArr, &exception);
         if (*exception.errorCode != '\0')
                printf("[HelloWorld] Caught exception in publish errorCode=%s, message=%s\n",
                       exception.errorCode, exception.message);

The server rel 1.0.2 runs on a Pentium 4 at 1.2 GHz with JRE 1.4.2_03.
There is no subscription pending.

By using sockets, I was expecting better results than with CORBA (http://www.xmlblaster.org/performance.html) and obtained a throughput of 400 messages / seconds.
The limit is not the network as the server takes 99% of the CPU time.

When using the standard publish method, the throughput is 310 messages/s.

a) Am I doing something wrong ?
b) Should we expect improvement of throughput in future releases ?
c) Any plan for writing a high performance version of the server in C++ ?
