Startup Times of Java and Native Applications Aligned
The new release of Excelsior’s Java SE 6 JVM
substantially improves startup time of Java applications
Novosibirsk, Russia, July 7, 2010 -- Excelsior LLC, an authorized
Java technology licensee and JVM vendor, today announced the general
availability of Excelsior JET 7.2, the latest update to its compliant
Java SE 6 implementation. This new release helps Java developers
optimize application startup time, putting their Java products on par
with native rivals.
Many people still think Java is slow, and perceivable application
startup delay is one of the main reasons for that. Desktop Java
features such as instant splash screen display are just attempts
to subdue the symptoms instead of curing the disease. The problem
needed a true solution.
Ahead-of-time (AOT) compilation of portable Java bytecode down to
optimized native code has always been the distinguishing
characteristic of Excelsior’s Java SE implementation,
Excelsior JET. Conducted prior to deployment, on a developers system,
AOT compilation effectively removes bootstrap overheads inherent to
“traditional” JVMs and, in conjunction with implemented
I/O optimizations, makes Java applications start as fast as their
The company also published a
backing the above statement. In it, a popular Java RSS feed reader
is compared with two native Windows applications providing similar
functionality. The optimizations implemented in Excelsior JET 7.2
resulted in 2x to 3x startup time improvement over the standard JRE,
making the Java reader start as fast as the native ones.
Excelsior JET 7.2 also features faster AOT and JIT compilers,
usability enhancements, and support for the latest Java SE version.
A fully functional, time-limited evaluation copy of Excelsior JET 7.2
is available for download.
