Re: [tlug] Anyone know if the java compiler with Suns JDK supports multiprocessors in Linux


You might want to have a look at jikes, IBM's standalone Java

Jikes is written in C++, whereas the javac in the JDK is written
in Java. Jikes used to be about ten times faster than javac,
but with the better JIT stuff now I am not so sure. In any
case, it blazes, and gives better error messages to boot.
