The people who stick to the original charters

Every Java App I install on my machine has painfully slow UI response
time for input boxes.

The link below is technically not an app(lication),
it is an applet, but it should use the same JVM
your apps. are using (fingers crossed).

This smallish demonstration applet has both a
text field and text area available in a pop-up dialog.
Produce the dialog by selecting 'Editable' from the
drop-down on the upper right.

Do these text elements show the same slow
behaviour as your applications?

The text is there, as I can type and click "OK"
and the text gets processed, but it doesn't actually show up on screen
for 5-15 seconds after typing.

Any ideas on why this would happen?

Methinks they might be 'blocking the EDT', but
the test above should help us determine that.
(There is no process behind that dialog that could
conceivably block Java's Event Dispatch Thread)

 ..I have the latest JRE installed.

Let's just check we are all on the same page.

What do the application and applet listed here,..
  <> for java.version?
(The files you are after are jtest.jnlp & jtest-applet.jnlp)
