JavaNativeCompiler (JNC) is a Java to native compiler. The project allows AOT (ahead of time) compilation of your Java applications. With JNC, you can create real standalone native binaries (.exe on Windows) which will no longer depend on a JRE.
This is especially useful when applications have to be deployed to end-users. All vexatious problems of deploying Java applications can be solved by compiling them to native. They will be:
- Easy to deploy
No JRE dependency. Most end-users don't know what they have installed.
No more problems on how to create an executable file out of a JAR or class file.
- Hard to decompile
Java can easily be decompiled. Native compilation will protect your source code.
- Run fast from the start
No more overhead for loading a JRE.
What's New in This Release:
· This release fixes a couple of problems with AWT/Swing and XML.
· It also once again contains a version for Linux.
