Thanks for your help. I've had a look on the Sun forum but the best I can seem to come up with is a shareware proggy that does this. However, I was looking for something a bit more permanent (and a bit more free
) .... so any other ideas would certainly be appreciated.
Has anyone heard/seen a compiler that compiles java code to machine code?
Whenever the java/c++ speed debate comes up, someone ALWAYS mentions the existence of a java compiler to compile directly to machine code which is supposedly narrowing the speed gap ... I, however, have never seen anything like that. So I'm wondering if it's a myth (like dry land) or does it really exist?
