WebLogic JRockit 7.0 for Intel-based Servers is "World's Fastest JVM," Says BEA

(September 12, 2002) - BEA Systems, Inc. is now shipping BEA WebLogic JRockit 7.0, the next generation of its Java Virtual Machine (JVM). Optimized for all Intel-based servers, including both the Intel Xeon and Itanium architectures, BEA WebLogic JRockit 7.0 is the keystone in BEA's strategy to give its customers a superior combination of price and performance for Java enterprise computing. BEA WebLogic JRockit enables companies to run Java applications on a broad range of Intel-based servers, thereby helping to lower the total cost of ownership for enterprise computing.

"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," said Bob Griswold, vice-president and general manager of the Java run-time products group at BEA.

Because BEA WebLogic JRockit 7.0 brings interoperability across multiple hardware and operating system configurations, customer choice extends to a range of hardware vendors including HP, Dell, Fujitsu, and more, as well as a range of operating systems (OS) such as Red Hat Linux and Microsoft Windows. In addition to hardware and OS vendors, numerous software partners are supporting BEA WebLogic JRockit to help drive adoption of the product.

Before BEA WebLogic JRockit 7.0, companies with Intel-based servers typically ran multiple instances of BEA WebLogic Server for enterprise-class Java applications, assigning a maximum of two gigabytes of memory to each server instance - or they spent significantly more to run proprietary RISC-based hardware. Now, the memory limitation has vanished and companies can run applications that utilize hundreds of gigabytes of information virtually without any downturn in application performance. In addition, with BEA WebLogic JRockit, application performance improves significantly because applications no longer have to wait for lengthy pause times due to garbage collection.

BEA WebLogic JRockit 7.0 is immediately available for free download at http://commerce.bea.com/downloads/weblogic_jrockit.jsp.

I have a simple application that access a database and displays the results. Under Sun JDK it takes about 1.5 seconds, under JRockit I watched it go down to 6 seconds. If that is the fastest JVM out there, I would hate to see a slower one!!
