Cygnus Solutions announced availability April 7 of its GNU Compiler Java (GCJ) edition with open-source Java libraries. GNU stands for GNU's Not Unix, an open-source Unix software development consortium. This permits Java developers to use GCJ, a Java compiler built with GNU compiler technology, which allows Java source code and Java byte codes to be compiled to native instructions. Java libraries—java.lang, java.util, java.io, java.text, and java.net—and compiler are available at sourceware.cygnus.com .

GCJ allows developers to write applications in the Java programming language for Linux and Solaris. By compiling to machine code rather than bytecode, Cygnus Java Compiler technology improves application performance 20 times over an interpreted application. This Java technology is reported to be ideal for embedded systems developers seeking the best combination of performance, memory footprint, and cost.
