overview how it works future applications for researchers

Computer programmers who want to increase their productivity have two basic options. They can force their brains to operate faster or find ways to avoid technical obstacles that slow down their work. A research team at IBM has recently found a short cut around some of the technical hurdles that slow down programs written in Java -- a simple computer language that has become extremely popular for work on the Internet. The High Performance Compiler for Java (HPCJ) guarantees a level of performance for Java programs unmatched by conventional techniques.
