    Excelsior JET + JNA to get a transparent window

    Does it work in Linux using the official JDK. My guess is that you are running your desktop without a composition manager, which is required to get that transparency stuff working. Thats also the case for the official JDK. - Clemens

    64 bit JET

    Memory intensive apps shouldn't benefit a lot, most improvements see apps which are very register starved, or operate a lot on 64-bit integers. We did some benchmarks here with real-world software, and in all cases performance in 64-bit mode was lower (when not using CompressedOops). - Clemens

    Console Output

    Hi, as far as I know its encoded in the exe-format if the application should open a console or not - pretty unflexible design. What you could probably do is to write a small C launcher application, which has that console flag set, and launch your jet-compiled application out of this app. - Clemens

    Great By the way thanks for contributing back into OpenJDK! - Clemens

    Question about academic license

    No, just of better 2d performance on linux desktops Do you know wether JET has optimizations for sun.misc.Unsafe or for NIO buffers? I am still working on JUIBrowser, I hope your offer won't expire because of the delay Thanks, Clemens

    Question about academic license

    Thanks a lot for the gratulations For now its quite ugly code, I plan a rewrite generating X11 protocol in java directly, for some time now. Who knows maybe some day it will be deployed with Excelsior JET for Linux ... if it will be integrated into OpenJDK some day (I really hope so). Thanks again, Clemens

    JOptionPane and NVIDIA driver on Linux

    I guess the problem is most likely in the nvidia driver itself, would be great if you could report the problem there too: http://www.nvnews.net/vbulletin/forumdisplay.php?f=14 Thats the place where nvidia devs look for reports. please mention that the problem only happens with the nvidia driver. lg Clemens

    Using older versions for PR purposes

    Well if the apps are not finished, why not compiling it with the Evaluation version during development? Once they are finished you can ask for the free license, Excelsior seems to be very friendly and cooperativ My project itself is a very boring one and even for that they said a free license would be granted. lg Clemens

    yes, but nothing commercial - so I can't really call myself a "customer"
  11. Linuxhippy


    Not at all, I was just curious about the reason you asked about this. I just can add that JET is great, although I am also no customer. But just because I don't have anything to compile with it, otherwise it would not be a hard descision lg Clemens

    This makes me a some kind of curious. Why are you posting here for help, if you are not using Excelsior-JET? lg Clemens

    Question about academic license

    Wow thanks a lot - I did not even think about asking for a free license because its such a boring, not very well known project. Thanks you did agree to the free license lg Clemens

    Question about academic license

    Exactly, always the same code is executed (which interprets the commands from the server) on the client, except for the case that the developer uses self-written components. Thats why I asked about "plugin" loaded by the JIT. However a non-interactive server-side only custom component is in the works too. If the user wishes to run the JET-compiled executable (which he most likely will prefer ), he can launch a stand-alone application. Applet and Webstart can still be used if running "in" a JVM. lg Clemens

    Question about academic license

    Hey, did not know you know ULC ) Yes, JUIBrowser is pretty much the same as ULC, it shares the same ideas. So, JUIBrowser is a free and open-source version of ULC. I have already a modified netbeans version which can generate code, very much like the ULC designer. Another goal is to keep the client-runtime small (less than 100kb, preferable <50k) whereas ULC is quite a fat client (~600kb last time I checked). Excelsior-Jet would allow organizations using JUIBrowser to deploy the runtime to a shared-folder - and therefor would allow to run it without any 3rd party software installation. An app-private JRE is not really well suited for this task, because of the large working set which has to be transmitted over network.. I think this could be really benefitial for JUIBrowser, because what I have seen JRE installations are a step-child of larger organizations - my last project was deployed on 1.3.1 on clients. However I don't know how fast JUIBrowser can progress, I don't have any projects which could benefit of a transition to JUIBrowser. lg Clemens
