ABSTRACT
The article reports that ARM Holdings PLC has addressed code density in Java-based processor designs with a runtime compiler target for its Jazelle DBX mobile device architecture The intention is to enable run time compilers in a Java environment to maximize code density without loss of performance. The processor, firm's latest extension to its Java environment is called Jazelle Runtime Compilation Target and it should allow bytecode to be replaced with native code and virtually no code expansion, while pre-linking can attack the remaining data in the class files.
