No, it won't. It has been proved false by counterexample that C/C++ will 
*always* be faster than Java.  On some problems, Java already is faster 
than C or C++. Fact is some problems are more amenable to the sort of 
runtime JIT optimization Java does. Others are more amenable to the sort 
of static optimization C/C++ do. Which one is faster depends on what 
sort of problem you have.
