It is taking 25 seconds for our applet to connect to EAServer and then
another 25 seconds to get our first home interface (local or through a web
server). Subsequent calls take less than a second.

It takes less than a second for each when running as an application.

Note all times are in addition to download times.

Here is the code:

// Initilized ORB
props.put("org.omg.CORBA.ORBClass", "com.sybase.CORBA.ORB");
props.put("com.sybase.CORBA.RetryDelay", "1");
orb = ORB.init(args, props);

// get session
Manager manager = ManagerHelper.narrow(orb.string_to_object(url));
tempSession = manager.createSession(userName, password); // 25 Seconds

// get object reference
LocalizerHome home =
LocalizerHomeHelper.narrow(tempSession.lookup("Localizer")); // 25 Seconds
localizer = home.create();

Thanks in advance
