SAL Home PROGRAM Languages & Compilers


TurboJ is a high performance Java byte code compiler resulting from advanced development efforts carried out by the Java R&D Program at The Open Group Research Institute. Its main features are:

  • It supports the Program Once, Run Everywhere paradigm that is making Java successful. TurboJ does not require source code. It takes byte code as input, as it is distributed on the net, and translates the byte code in faster native code that can be loaded by the Java runtime.
  • It supports mixed mode of interpreted and compile code
  • It is an optimizing compiler
  • It does not require its own runtime. It supports the platform runtime, as long as it is compliant to Java native specifications.
  • It fully supports Java 1.1 programming interfaces, including windowing.
