I have heard that the eclipse people have their own, publicly available,
free for commercial use native java compiler, called the "eclipse compiler for java".
-Is this true?
ecj is a Java compiler written in Java and available under the EPL.
-Does it come as an automatic part as the default Eclipse IDE download?
-Will installed the Eclipse IDE detect and revert to another compiler, or its own "ecj" compiler?
The Eclipse IDE uses ecj for all Java projects, unless you explicitly disable the "Java Builder".
-May the Eclipse compiler for java be downloaded and installed separately from the IDE, where and how?
For info on using ecj as a batch compiler please see http://help.eclipse.org/juno/topic/org.eclipse.jdt.doc.user/tasks/task-using_batch_compiler.htm?cp=1_3_8_0
-Does ECJ support Java 1.5 syntax and up?
anything between 1.3 and 1.7 (inclusive).
-Will it only produce executable programs, or can it output .class files?
-What OS'es will the compiler install on (Mac/Windows 7/Linux)?
Any platform that has a JVM.
