Fastest JVM

BEA Systems Inc. on Monday will release JRockit 7.0 for Intel Corp. hardware, which one company official termed the "world's fastest" Java Virtual Machine.

"We've been working with Intel closely for the past year on optimizing this JVM for the Intel architecture, so what you'll see with JRockit 7.0 is the world's fastest JVM on the Intel architecture. It's actually the world's fastest JVM on any architecture, period," Griswold said.

JRockit 7.0 will be available free of charge, but the company hopes to leverage it to boost sales of its WebLogic Server application server platform, although the JVM will function with other application servers as well, Griswold said.

Platforms include:
* Microsoft Windows 2000 SP2
o JDK 1.3.1 & 1.4
o Intel Pentium / Xeon (IA32) servers

* Red Hat Linux Advanced Server 2.1
o JDK 1.3.1 & 1.4
o Intel Pentium / Xeon (IA32) servers

* Microsoft .NET ES RC1
o JDK 1.4
o Intel Itanium 2 (IA64) servers
o Note — WebLogic JRockit 7.0 is being released as Technology Preview only on this platform
