Hi folks,

Could anyone tell me something about the JIT (just in time compiler) component
of the Java VM? I haven't worked with Java myself and don't really know any
details about its VM. I have heard claims that the JIT makes Java code (or parts
of it?) run very fast and that the runtime compilation itself (from byte->native
code, I guess) has virtually no overhead from an application point of view. I
would like to know more. E.g. how does JIT relate to HiPE?
