InfoQ Article: Deploying Java Apps on Fedora Core

by Floyd Marinescu on Jun 26, 2006 |
GCJ is a portable, optimizing, ahead-of-time Java compiler. Fedora Core 4 was the first release to include a lot of Java code compiled with GCJ. This article by GCJ lead Tom Tromey explains the status of the GCJ project and how to use gcj to compile native RPMs on RedHat Fedora Core.
gcj aims to implement a complete system, compatible with Java, centered around an ahead-of-time compiler. It has a cleanroom class library based on GNU Classpath, and a built-in interpreter. The compiler can compile Java source files, class files, or even entire jar files to object code.

In recent related news,  a plan to use the Eclipse compiler as the new gcj front end was approved on June 6th. Also on April 17th, Tom Tromey has announced the availability of two experimental Just-In-Time (JIT) interpreters for GCJ based on libjit and LLVM respectively.
