Java 6 Support

Recommended Posts

Sure, 3-4Q 2007.

May I ask why it's important for you?

I mean what's appeared in Java 6  that you could not find in Java 5.

Note that we are aware of the features and improvements included in Java 6. The question is what a particular feature is of your intererst.

We use Java 6 for our applications because of:

* better speed than Java 5 (3x for us);

* latest version of JMX;

* JAXB 2.0 (bundled with Java 6) rocks;

* Handful of improvements to the standard libraries.

We don't need JET for all of our applications.  But we are fortunate enough that we can use Java 6 so we would like to stick with one JVM version and use JET for one or two applications.

Thanks.

Thanks for your answers.

Did you compare the speed for your apps if they are compiled with Excelsior JET?

For example, did you try this scenario

  -- app run under Sun JRE 1.5 (Java 5)

  -- app compiled with Excelsior JET 4.8 (Java 5)

  -- app run under Sun JRE 1.6 (Java 6)

?

We used JET a number of years ago with Java 1.4.  We never tried it with our apps when they were under Java 5.  We felt we didn't need to.  But now we have a Java 6 application that *may* benefit from JET.  So we are willing to try it out.  I'll let you know how it works out using JET.

And thanks for the update on the release schedule.

thanks a lot for your answers

What is the benefit you expect (performance, code protection, or something else)?

We used JET a number of years ago with Java 1.4

Well, it sounds like "a long time ago in a galaxy far away.."  B)

We are going to be running in what you would consider more of "an embedded" environment.  The application will be running on a single board computer that has a modern OS and not much else.  So the idea is to see if JET can produce some increment in system throughput.

Hello

I am a Java developper and I am planning to buy Excelsior JET, Professional Edition for Windows which includes one year of support and upgrade. I am currently using JSE6.0 to develop my software, which I undestood is not yet supported by Excelsior JET.

Also I would like to know when it is likely to be released and make sure that I will get it within my year of upgrade. This point is very important for me.

Thank you for your concern.
