- From previous threads I got the impression tla does not change groups or 
permissions on files it creates anyway; so this really isn't an issue. Is 
The only thing that is important for tla is if the effective rights can be 
read. And since java has 'canRead()' and 'canWrite()' thats suppost to be 
enough, right?
Add to that the availability of JFtp ( and you 
can use network transparancy as well.

When you talk about something that uses loads and loads of classes (Swing is 
a good example) you are right; but for something as simple as tla thats 
just not an issue.
You are right its slower, but not that to annoying levels.

I think you want to do some profiling using recent JVMs since your problem 
not really an issue since 1.4.x
