While advances with JIT compilers are making progress towards improving Java performance, existing Java execution techniques do not yet match the performance attained by conventional compiled languages.
The JIT compilers, on the other hand, are dynamically-invoked compilers that compile the Java bytecode during runtime.
The JIT compilers described in Section 3.2.2 can make use of this fact to inline small static methods to thereby reduce the overall number of static method calls.
Although JIT compilers are generally more efficient than interpreters, there are still advantages to using an interpreter.
Current JIT compilers offer a variety of target platforms and features.
Toba describes itself as a Way-Ahead-of-Time compiler since it compiles bytecodes before program execution in contrast to JIT compilers which compile the bytecodes immediately before execution.
JIT compilers, on the other hand, support both portability and flexibility, but they cannot achieve performance comparable to directly compiled code as only limited-scope optimizations can be performed.
