Excelsior JET is a certified Java SE 6 implementation powered by ahead-of-time (AOT) compilation technology, which helps you:
* Speed up your Java applications without any source code changes or hardware upgrades
* Protect your Java code from decompilation without compromising its performance
* Build compact, professional installers for your Java applications without dependency on the JRE
* Create pre-installed Java applications and save a fair bit of space when storing them on flash media such as USB drives
Excelsior JET Optimizer works by converting your application's classes and jars into highly optimized Intel x86 code and creating a native executable for Microsoft Windows or Linux platform. The executable is linked with Excelsior JET Runtime, a complete implementation of the Java SE 6 platform. Finally, Excelsior JET Installation Toolkit facilitates rapid creation of complete installation packages for your optimized Java applications.
Excelsior JET is certified Java Compatible on a number of Microsoft Windows and Linux (IA-32) platforms.
Version 7.0 supports Apache Tomcat at the JVM level, enabling you to protect your Java Web applications from reverse engineering and tampering.
Changelog for this release:
Excelsior JET 7.6 is an interim release that enhances optimized applications performance and improves their stability. It also supports newer versions of Java SE 6, Eclipse RCP and Apache Tomcat. Details follow.
In our results, performance of the optimized applications, especially those running on multi-core/multi-CPU systems, increased from 1.2x to 2.6x on certain benchmarks. Your mileage will vary, of course.
