Java Just-In-Time (JIT) Compiler: What is it, how does it work, where does it fit into JVM architecture (JIT vs Interpreter)?

Just-In-Time Compilers The simplest tool used to increase the performance of your application is the Just-In-Time (JIT) compiler. A JIT is a code generator that converts Java bytecode into native machine code. Java programs invoked with a JIT generally run much faster than when the bytecode is executed by the interpreter. The Java Hotspot VM […]
