SAL Home PROGRAM Languages & Compilers


CACAO is 64 bit just-in-time (JIT) compiler for Java. It translates Java byte code on demand into native code for the ALPHA processor. CACAO executes Java programs up to 85 times faster than the JDK interpreter and up to 7 times faster than the kaffe JIT compiler. It is slightly slower than equivalent C programs compiled at the highest optimization level.
