Java Virtual Machine enhanced with Ahead-Of-Time (AOT) compilation.
The AOT compiler transforms classes and jars into binary executables that run directly on hardware for Windows and Linux on the Intel x86 platform. These executables work faster than the original class files executed within a conventional JVM. In addition, your applications become more secure against tampering and code theft.
VM components responsible for Java memory management, threading, synchronization, security, etc., are placed into a DLL that you redistribute along with the precompiled executables. Among those runtime components is a JIT compiler that takes care of classes that could not be precompiled, thus enabling Excelsior JET to support the entire Java 2 Platform, Standard Edition 5.0 API, including dynamic class loading.
Your applications can use JNI and Invocation API to interoperate with C, C++ and Delphi, or use COM to interoperate with C++, VB6, VBA (and probably any other language that supports the COM interface).
