Novosibirsk, Russia (PRWEB) June 23, 2004 -- Excelsior, LLC, a Russian
vendor of software development tools, has announced today that it will
unveil the new version of its flagship product at the upcoming Sun
Microsystems' JavaOne(SM) conference. Excelsior will exhibit in booth
#519 and will demonstrate Excelsior JET 3.6, an important upgrade to
their Java Virtual Machine supercharged with Ahead-Of-Time compilation.
Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) compilation, the core feature of Excelsior JET,

class loading facilities through provision of a Caching Just-In-Time (JIT)
Excelsior JET has been available to Java developers targeting Microsoft
Windows since the year 2000, and this new release will have version
number 3.6. The growing popularity of Linux, in particular among Java
developers, has inspired Excelsior to port their product to Linux.
Starting from version 3.6, Excelsior JET will be available for both
Windows and Linux on the Intel x86 (IA-32) platform.
"Many Excelsior JET users were asking us whether we plan to support
this or that platform in the future, and Linux was by far the most
desirable target", said Dmitry Leskov, Excelsior's Director of Marketing.
"Given the number of inquires, we expect that our customer base will grow
substantially with this new two-platform release."
Excelsior will distribute evaluation copies of Excelsior JET 3.6 for
Windows and Excelsior JET 3.6 for Linux at their JavaOne booth.
Excelsior JET 3.6 is set to become available for purchase on July 12,
2004. Users of the current version of Excelsior JET for Windows will
receive a very special offer for the Linux version.
