announced today that the first public beta version of its JET Java 2 Deployment
Environment is available for public evaluation. Effective today, JET 0.5 beta may be

"We rate the feedback we shall get from developers deploying their real applications
with JET as invaluable."
JET allows developers to easily deploy Java applications as extremely optimized,
native Windows executables.

reads Java class files created in any Java IDE, compiles them
using aggressive optimization techniques specially adapted to Java,
links with high performance runtime support libraries, and produces a
conventional executable file.
The current beta version of JET supports basic Java 2 platform classes, including I/O,
networking, and AWT. The next major beta shall include support for Swing and a smart
OO linker that would considerably reduce size of deployed executables.
"We plan to offer JET as a standalone product, but we also welcome to cooperation
vendors of IDEs, application servers and other software related to Java development
willing to complement their product with our deployment technology",
said Dmitry Leskov, Excelsior's Director of Marketing.
