JVM reduces footprint and startup time and adds profiling

Jan 15, 2002 — by LinuxDevices Staff — from the LinuxDevices Archive — views

Lisle, IL — (press release excerpt) — NewMonics, Inc., today announced the launch of the newest version of PERC, its patented embedded JVM expressly created for complex, robust embedded systems. With the release, PERC becomes the first embedded JVM to provide enterprise-class profiling. The PERC 3.2.1 release also extends its support of leading RTOSs, introduces new support for debugging, and offers greatly reduced start-up time and footprint.

Profiling is considered a significant breakthrough by engineers using Java to create their embedded products in that it helps optimize system performance by quickly pinpointing and resolving memory leaks and performance bottlenecks and ultimately speeds time to market. The advancement is the result of a NewMonics' agreement to port for re-sale the award-winning Optimizeit Profiler.

Specifically, PERC 3.2.1 introduces:

  • New support for VxWorks AE and Nucleus RTOSs, in addition to well-established support for VxWorks, OSE and Linux
  • Optimizeit profiling support
  • FORTE and JBuilder debugging support
  • 20% faster start-up time, 30% smaller footprint
The PERC 3.2.1 release follows the release in autumn of 2001 of PERC 3.2, which introduced new compiler performance optimizations for faster execution, especially on PowerPC targets, with ahead-of-time and just-in-time compilation.
