  • JIT compilation

    by Shamal Jayakody /

    JIT compilation can be applied to a whole program, or can be used for certain capacities, particularly dynamic capacities such as regular expressions. For example, a text editor may compile a regular expression provided at runtime to machine code to allow faster matching – this cannot be done ahead of time, as the data is only provided at run time. Several modern runtime environments rely on JIT compilation for high-speed code execution, most significantly most implementations of Java, together with Microsoft's .NET Framework. Similarly, many regular expression libraries ("regular expression engines") feature JIT compilation of regular expressions, either to bytecode or to machine code.
