"IBM has released its latest Java port for Linux, the Java 1.1.8
IBM Developer Kit for Linux. Faster than its predecessor (the
Developer Kit for Java 1.1.6), this newest implementation is
competitive with IBM's Java for Windows, previously the fastest of
the free implementations of Java."
"Following close on the heels of its release earlier this year
of a Linux port of Sun's JDK 1.1.6, IBM has announced the latest
and fastest Java release for Linux, the Java 1.1.8 IBM Developer
Kit for Linux. IBM's latest port -- compliant with Sun's
Version 1.1.8 Java compatibility test -- exceeds the performance of
the earlier version, and contains IBM's Just-In-Time (JIT)
compiling technology and Mixed Mode Interpreter (MMI) ported to the
Linux environment. These enhancements have resulted in a
performance gain on the industry benchmarks over the previous
release, making Java performance for Linux comparable to
"An alpha version of the Developer Kit has been available for
download from alphaWorks for several months, and, says IBM's senior
marketing manager with the Java business line Jeff Roberts, the
final version is a stable, high-performance implementation of Java
that enhances IBM's Linux-enabled middleware."
