This week's book giveaway is in the OCPJP forum. We're giving away four copies of OCA/OCP Java SE 7 Programmer I & II Study Guide and have Kathy Sierra & Bert Bates on-line! See this thread for details.
Hi, Could we convert our java byte code program (.class file) into native code(.exe).Is there any utility in JDK1.3 for this purpose. I am sorry if this type of question has been already posted. Thanks in adv Sonu
Some IDEs like Metroworks will deploy your app as an .exe. You can also get a bytecode compiler that will compile your .class files into actual platform-dependant machine code. This of course makes your application non-portable. And, you should realize that with the state of modern optimizers and just-in-time compilers, some operations in your .exe could actually be *slower* than normal java bytecode. Just because it's compiled doesn't make it faster!! Here's a url for Jet, a java bytecode compiler for windows: http://www.excelsior-usa.com/home.html
