Sun Microsystems plans to introduce its HotSpot Java Virtual Machine (JVM) at the Java One show in San Francisco later this month.
According to US reports, the technology will enable Java to run as fast as C++ by employing Adaptive Optimisation, which analyses Java programs as they run and uses the information to optimise critical areas or 'hot spots'.
HotSpot also includes a new method of garbage collection, dubbed Train, to remove any unwanted Java applets from the Java environment. Train is reportedly more efficient than the traditional Bone Collector garbage collection algorithim, because it is uninterruptable and will not waste time cleaning up when the JVM is busy.
In future, the technology is expected to be split into two components - the JVM and the compiler, which Sun will charge separately for.
