Tomcat Web Applications Compiled Natively - Excelsior JET 7.0 beta 2

  • submit to reddit
Novosibirsk, Russia

Excelsior JET is a compliant Java SE 6 implementation (JVM) with an Ahead-Of-Time compiler and deployment toolkit.

Excelsior JET 7.0 will enable you to compile Apache Tomcat together with your Web applications into a native code executable and distribute it without the original class/WAR files and without dependency on the JDK.

The just-released beta 2 features support for Tomcat 5.0, 5.5, and 6.0, Windows services, truly classfile-free distribution (even JSPs can be compiled without rt.jar!), and better optimization of machine-generated bytecode.
