Excelsior JET 11 Beta 2 Adds A Long-Awaited Feature

We have published Excelsior JET 11 beta 2 for all five platforms.

Version 11 Highlights

  • Java SE 8 and JavaFX 8 support
  • 99.9999% of JCK8 tests passed

New in this beta

  • Startup time improvement technologies are now available in the 64‑bit versions as well.
  • Command-line interface to JetPackII. After a long last, you can package your apps without invoking the JetPackII GUI:

    xpack -add-file c:\work\MyApp\native\MyApp.exe /bin ^
          -backend excelsior-installer ^
          -company MyCompany ^
          -product MyProduct ^ 
          -eula c:\work\MyApp\MyApp.license ^
          -target c:\work\MyApp\installer\MyApp-setup.exe

    Version 11 will not support some features of the JetPackII GUI, but we plan to add them all later.

Known Issues

  • Startup Accelerator is missing in the OS X version and will be added at some point after release.
  • JET-8055: On Linux, application may crash if run from a directory with spaces in the pathname and the Startup Accelerator is enabled.
  • JET-8040: Eclipse RCP applications may not work on 64-bit Ubuntu if created with Eclipse 4.3
