Two kinds of vm. java calls the underlying os.
VMWare emulates hardware, that is, the emulated os stores a value somewhere, VMWare recognizes thats a hardware-register and what to do. That is a much harder and slower way. And its done quite often, more or less for each vertex each frame. While java makes one os-call with a prepared data-structure, and that triggers a lot stores to those hardware-registers at native speed.
