Projects / Gnome-GCJ


Gnome-GCJ is a set of GTK+ and GNOME bindings for Java. It compiles with the GCJ compiler (part of egcs) and uses the GCJ runtime library libgcj. GCJ is capable of compiling Java source code to native machine code, which makes Java code almost as fast as C++ code. As the interface between Java and GTK+, CNI (Cygnus Native Interface) and C++ will be used instead of the more traditional JNI and C. This means that support for other Java runtimes has been sacrificed in favour of GCJ and its faster CNI.
