Exe file size larger.

Recommended Posts


I'm using same build files and jar on different versions of JET 15-eval and JET 9 PRO.
The JET 15 generated exe and DLL are about 10% larger than JET 9.

According to change.log there is a improvement that suppose to reduce file size.
What could be the cause?

Excelsior JET 9 supported Java 7 whereas Excelsior JET 15 supports Java 8. The growth is due to a larger amount of generated meta-data.

The initial growth was bigger than 10% and we've been trying to reduce it with each subsequent release.
