As you may have read in our August 1st announcement, Excelsior JET 6.5 will provide support for the Equinox OSGi runtime, enabling you to protect Eclipse RCP applications from reverse engineering and tampering.
We have just published Excelsior JET 6.5 beta 2, along with two natively compiled RCP applications to illustrate its capabilities:
Here is what’s new in beta 2:
Eclipse RCP Support
- Numerous bug fixes and overall stability improvements
- Over 90% of Eclipse Unit Tests have passed on the compiled Eclipse IDE
- java.util.zip.*: access to jar/zip archives speeded up
- JNI: substantially reduced overhead of calling Java methods from native methods
