I've been using the evaluation edition of Jet to check it's suitability and I have a couple of gripes re it's performance.
The application I am compiling is quite a large Swing based application and one of the things my users always complain about is the time it takes to launch the application. ?Using the JRE with hotspot this can take around 20-30 seconds, I assumed Jet would be quicker as it doesn't have to do all the JIT stuff at startup. ?But why does the Jet compiled application take 2 to 3 times longer to launch?
Also, ?using the standard JRE my application uses around 25-30MB of memory, the Jet compiled .exe uses over 40MB causing the application to perform a lot more sluggish on lower spec PC's. ?Is there anything that can be done do reduce the memory overhead?
Otherwise, Jet looks quite promising.
