JCC is a direct Java to C translator. Unlike other translators JCC
does not convert Java class files, but instead processes Java source
code directly. It converts whole programs at a time, which can cause
the conversion process to be quite lengthy, but has the advantage that
a number of optimisations can be performed that would be very
difficult to achieve with other techniques. When used with a good
optimising C compiler it produces programs that are typically between
10 to 20 times faster than the 1.0.2 JVM. One example sort program has
been speeded up 55 times.

A beta level evaluation copy of the program may be downloaded, that
will convert command line applications such as Sun's javac on WIN32
systems. JCC may produce code that is compatible with other platforms,
but this has not been tried, and a certain amount of porting of the
run time library would be necessary.

The author wishes to sell this technology.
