Posted by Ars Technicode on October 12, 2018 15:16:51If you’re looking for a new language to try out, Unijas Java 7 might be for you.
Unijos, the company behind the Java runtime, announced that the Java 7 compiler, JEP 6, was released on September 25.
The Java 7 source code has now been released and, to boot, the compiler now has a new feature called ‘interfaces’.
Interfaces are an extension to the Java compiler, that allows the compiler to infer the interfaces of Java programs.
These interfaces allow the compiler, in turn, to infer how to link the programs together.
For example, if we want to write a program that calls a method on a List and adds a value to that List, then we could write the following:List.add(Integer.valueOf(0));This program could compile and run, but we’d have to add a method called add to our List class, which we might not want to do.
We could instead write the code like this:List.add(0);Instead of writing:List(Integer).add(1);, we could instead put the following code:ListList.
Add(0, Integer.valueOn(1));Now, our code is compile-time-accurate, meaning it can build the code that we need.
It’s also more portable than writing code like:List List.
Add (0, 0);, which would cause the compiler’s optimizer to generate incorrect code.
UniJos has also announced that Java 7.1.0 has been released.
That release contains many performance and performance-improvement improvements.
For instance, the Java SE 6 compiler now optimizes code on 32-bit machines.
Java SE 7.0 also includes new support for multi-threaded compilation on 64-bit platforms, including 64- and 128-bit versions of Java.
And UniJos also announced Java 7 support for OpenJDK 9, which is a cross-compilation engine for the Java platform.
The company says Java 7 supports 64-bits processors with Java SE 8.1 and Java SE 9.0, while Java SE 10 supports 64 and 128 bits with Java 8.0 and Java 9.2.
Unis code is also better, with Java 7 now having a 64-character maximum Unicode character limit.
UniJans Java 7 release notes also say that UniJaws Java 7 is compatible with Java 6.
UniJs new Java 7 documentation lists many performance improvements, including:* Java SE and Java 7 have been integrated to a single JVM that is faster and more efficient for all major platform platforms.* Java 7 performance improvements include faster compilation, reduced memory usage, and increased execution time.* Java SE is faster in general for most applications.* Java 8 has improved support for integer and floating-point types.* Java 9 has improved performance for multi threaded applications, including multi-core processors.
Unicode characters are set to the value of 0 for 32- and 64-Bit systems.
The Unicode character set is the same as that used by the Unicode standard.
However, there are two significant differences between the Unicode and the standard character set:In the Unicode version, Unicode characters have no special meaning for the operating system; they are not supported by the operating systems.
Unicode is the system’s standard for handling non-alphanumeric characters.
For more information on the Unicode character system, see the Unicode Technical Report.
In the standard version of Unicode, each character has its own set of meanings.
Unicode allows the programmer to write software that understands the meaning of all characters, but there is no standard way to do that.
In other words, the Unicode characters used by UniJets Java 7 are not the same ones that are supported by Java SE.
For this reason, UniJows Java 7 code is not necessarily correct.
This also means that UniJs Java 7 will be more portable.
Unijos also noted that Unijaws Java 6 code is a little bit more accurate and faster for 64- or 128-Bit machines.
The performance improvements are only for UniJoses Java 7, but UniJ’s Java 7 developers have said that UniJa will support both 64- bit and 128 bit Java versions.
In other words: Java 7 and UniJOS Java 7 may work on 64 or 128 bit systems, but Java 7 on 32 bit and 64 bit systems is not yet supported.
In UniJOs Java 7 API, 64- bits and 128 are not available.
In terms of performance, UniJs latest release of Java 7 has been well received by developers, with a benchmark score of 3,723,914.
In comparison, UniJa’s Java 6 release was just over 1,000 points lower.
The benchmark score is still significantly higher than UniJais Java 6, which had just over 200
