About this manual

Excelsior JET is a toolkit and complete runtime environment for optimizing, deploying and running applications written in the Java programming language. JET is a powerful solution that enables your desktop and server side Java applications to take full advantage of the underlying hardware. Moreover, JET effectively protects your intellectual property by making your programs as hard to reverse engineer as if they were written in C++. Auxilary tools that come with Excelsior JET, simplify deployment of your Java applications to target systems.

This manual is both a reference and learning guide. Its chapters are as follows:

Chapter Application considerations discusses fine tuning and running your applications. This includes information on adjusting a compiled application’s performance and memory consumption, setting system properties, resource packing, and the like.

Language descriptions

Where formal descriptions for language syntax constructions appear, an extended Backus-Naur Formalism (EBNF) is used.

These descriptions are set in the Courier font.

    Text = Text [ { Text } ] | Text.

In EBNF, brackets "[" and "]" denote optionality of the enclosed expression, braces "{" and "}" denote repetition (possibly 0 times), and the vertical line "|" separates mutually exclusive variants.

Non-terminal symbols start with an upper case letter (Statement). Terminal symbols either start with a lower case letter (ident), or are written in all upper case letters (OPTION), or are enclosed within quotation marks (e.g. '=' ).

Source code fragments

When fragments of a source code are used for examples or appear within a text they are set in the Courier font.

    public class hello
    {
      static public void main (String args[])
      {
         System.out.println("Hello world!");
      }
    }
