JCGO (pronounced as "j-c-go") translates (converts) programs written in Java into platform-independent C code that can be compiled (by third-party tools) into highly-optimized native code for the target platform. JCGO is a powerful solution that enables your desktop, server-side, embedded, mobile, and wireless Java applications to take full advantage of the underlying hardware. In addition, JCGO makes your programs, when compiled to native code, as hard to reverse engineer as if they were written in C/C++. The JCGO translator uses some optimization algorithms that allow, together with optimizations performed by a C compiler, the resulting executable code to reach better performance compared with the traditional Java implementations (based on the Just-In-Time technology). The produced executable does not contain nor require a Java Virtual Machine to execute, so its resource requirements are smaller than that required by a typical Java VM. This also simplifies the process of deployment and distribution of an application.
Blacken is a Java library for Roguelike development. It supports arbitrarily resizing the window. It maintains a "preferred size", changing the font size as needed. By default, all applications support Alt-Enter for fullscreen mode. It strives to support Unicode well. A cell contains a sequence of codepoints. Codepoints may be outside the Basic Multilingual Plane or zero-width accents. All key input consists of valid Unicode codepoints. Special keys are handled by codepoints in "private use" planes. Modifier keys are handled through a prefix character (like Unix systems handle Alt via the Escape character).
