On my own Web site (www.fromoldbooks.org) in the few places where I use
a standalone Java query engine, I run it using "nailgun", which keeps a
pool of JVMs started and ready, runs the task on one of them and then
after sending back the result starts another JVM ready for next time.

I often do find Saxon faster than libxslt these days, even including
JVM startup time, and using some XSLT 2 techniques such as "as"
attributes on variables can help widen that gap.
