That's not necessarily the case -- C/C++ have some advantages for fast
I/O that Java doesn't share, but if your other code is not I/O-bound,
and if it doesn't require small, tight processing loops, the speed
difference for the non-parsing code might be much less significant
(depending on how efficient your VM and OS are at memory-management).

All the best,
