Jazelle state In this section, non-Jazelle state means any processor instruction set state other than Jazelle state. When the processor is in Jazelle state it. Today when reading about ARM? I have Seen that ARM Jazelle. But i have seen that any java compiler for ARM controller and what is ARM. Yes Dalvik makes Jazelle useless. The only question is was Jazelle useful to begin with or is it 90% marketing hype? A good JIT or AOT(ahead of Time).

I suspect there is another reason. However by changing the byte codes haven’t they made hardware acceleration technologies such as Jazelle moot, and thus actually degraded the performance srm for a Mobile Java platform? It appears counter intuitive to me knowing that the target platform is a ARM based mobile platform.

Yes Dalvik makes Jazelle useless. The register based approach of Dalvik might be faster than a traditional java bytecode interpreter but if the difference in minor between that of an interpreter and that of a JIT. Iazelle one of the next versions of Android has a JIT.

Sun and Microsoft have spent those years. Unlike most virtual machines and true Java VMs which are stack machines, the Dalvik VM is a register-based architecture. Being optimized jazwlle low memory requirements, Dalvik has some specific characteristics that differentiate it from other standard VMs:.

Moreover, Dalvik has been designed so that a device can run multiple instances of the VM efficiently. ARM joined an year later in December, I was actually under the impression that Dalvik was intended more for space efficiency than execution efficiency.

While the current phones may use an ARM with Jazelle support, that’s not necessarily true going forward. The published specifications are very incomplete, being only sufficient for writing operating system code that can support arrm JVM that uses Jazelle. The hazelle intent is that only the JVM software needs to or is allowed to depend on the hardware interface details.

This tight binding facilitates that the hardware and JVM can evolve together without affecting other software. It also prevents open jszelle JVMs from using Jazelle.

Does it actually improve performance, and if so how? What’s the effect on other platforms? Pedantic 4, 2 17 NoMoreZealots 3, 6 33 I don’t see how this is not programming related.

Jazelle has mostly of gone away. I don’t know the Jazelle instruction set that well, but the concept when applied to Bytecodes seems logical. Because bytecodes are just a machine code for a “Mythical” processor. Are there performance problems with Jazelle?

I can buy the ahead of Time compilation being efficient, because that’s no different then saying bytescode is intermediate representation. That’s the exact same concept as a normal compiler. And while the same applies for JIT, it requires using extra cycles to do it while you are running the code. My intent isn’t to dispute your answer, just to get more information. If you read the Sun HotSpot papers you can see the optimizations inlining functions, eliminating virtual call overhead, removing the need for synchronizations, avoiding object allocations.

Jazelle can not do any of them. Jazelles not bad but if you have the choice between aand core 2, I want the core 2. I haven’t seen alot of good Benchmarks that compare Jazelle. I guess the lack of information says more than the benchmarks would if I could find them.

So is the jist of this that the Java virtual machine doesn’t port as well to hardware as it does to software? If you are memory constrained Jazelle is better than a JIT. There are exceptions give you more performance. And if your really low end embedded skip using a java virtual machine and compile your java straight to asm.

Being optimized for low memory requirements, Dalvik has some specific characteristics that differentiate it from other standard VMs: The VM was slimmed down to use less space.

Dalvik has no just-in-time compiler. The constant pool has been modified to use only bit indexes to simplify the interpreter. It uses its own bytecode, not Java bytecode. I get that for a pure software implementation, but Jazelle adds another variable to the equation which makes performance less cut and dry on that platform.

Also from Wikipedia warning: Once they add a JITter to Dalvik, it will all be a moot point. Daniel Arrm 5, 28 The hype is that a register based model is suppose to improve performance. Sign up or log in Sign up using Google.
