Why are java apps so slow on OS X?

I'm forced to use an imaging app for raw file conversions that is written in java and it is painfully slow. I'm using a Mac dual G5 1.8 with 4 gigs of RAM and no matter what I do the app is unusable. It's been my experience that anything written in java and run on a Mac is sluggish at best. Does the same hold true for Windows PC's or is this a Mac specific problem?
