Excelsior JET 5.0 Slims Down the Java SE Runtime

Excelsior JET 5.0 enables Java developers to omit the unused parts of the Java SE platform when deploying their optimized applic

NOVOSIBIRSK, Russia, May 23 /PRNewswire/ -- Have you ever wished the JRE was a bit smaller so as to bundle it with your Java application? Excelsior JET 5.0, announced today, is the first Java SE implementation that enables developers to leave the unused parts of the platform out of their application installers. At the same time, it maintains full Java compatibility through on- demand downloading of the omitted at runtime.

A Java SE implementation comprises thousands of standard API classes, dozens of native method libraries and numerous data files. However, most applications do not use some of the APIs at all. For instance, an application designed to run in the background, e.g. as a Windows service, may not need the Swing/AWT classes, AWT native method DLLs, and the associated resources such as fonts.

The key new feature of Excelsior JET 5.0 is the ability to exclude certain parts of the Java SE platform from the application's installation package, thus reducing its download size and disk footprint. For example, it may cut down a medium-size Java application that does not use Swing or AWT to a mere 5 MB, whereas the Sun JRE 5.0 alone is a 15 MB download.

Now, Java SE is a monolithic platform, as opposed to Java ME with its configurations and profiles. How can a licensed Java SE implementation allow you to exclude any part of the platform and remain 100% compatible? Mr. Vitaly Mikheev, the CTO for Excelsior, explains:

"When you build an installer for your optimized application, Excelsior JET automatically creates a secondary package containing the detached Java SE components. You place that package on a Web server accessible to your end- users, at the URL you have specified in the primary package containing the application. If the application attempts to access a detached component, the runtime will download and unpack the secondary package."

A few real-world Java applications packaged using this new technology are available at http://www.excelsior-usa.com/jetdownsize

See http://www.excelsior-usa.com/jetlatest.html for more information on new features and improvements in Excelsior JET 5.0. A fully functional, time- limited evaluation copy is available from http://www.excelsior-/ usa.com/jetdleval.html

The most popular Excelsior JET, Professional Edition for Windows, is priced at $2,300 for one-user license with one year of support and upgrades. No runtime fees apply to applications designed to run on general purpose personal computers and servers, but deployment to embedded systems and devices is subject to royalties.

When talking IoT we often focus on the devices, the sensors, the hardware itself. The new smart appliances, the new smart or self-driving cars (which are amalgamations of many ‘things'). When we are looking at the world of IoT, we should take a step back, look at the big picture. What value are these devices providing. IoT is not about the devices, its about the data consumed and generated. The devices are tools, mechanisms, conduits. This paper discusses the considerations when dealing with the...
