Excelsior Jet, a JVM with Ahead-Of-Time compiler has been updated to verision 4.5. Jet precompiles JVM byte code to native X86 instructions.

  • Support for Java SE 5.0 Update 6 (1.5.0_06)
  • Application Download Size Reductions
  • Rebranding Support for the Excelsior Installer

  • JIT Compilation Now 3-5x Faster
