NOVOSIBIRSK, Russia, June 23, 2009 -- IP theft, code tampering and data
security breaches may become less of a concern to vendors of commercial
Java applications based on the Eclipse Rich Client Platform since today.
Excelsior LLC has just announced the general availability of Excelsior JET
6.5, a compliant Java SE 6 implementation enhanced with an ahead-of-time
compiler. The Enterprise Edition of Excelsior JET enables developers to
fully precompile their Eclipse RCP applications to native code and
distribute them without the original class files, keeping the Java
decompilers at bay.
"Excelsior JET represents the best, and possibly the only available,
solution capable to protect not only Eclipse RCP and OSGi based
applications, but also those that rely on the modeling technologies
available in the Eclipse platform," said Victor Roldan Betancort, software
developer and researcher for Open Canarias S.L.
The key innovation of Excelsior's technology is that it supports the core
of the Eclipse Runtime (Equinox OSGi) at the JVM level. As a result, the
code and data protection mechanisms previously implemented in the
Excelsior JVM are now enabled for Eclipse RCP applications as well.
"We have been testing Excelsior JET 6.5 from its first beta versions and
it has revealed to be perfectly working with such a complex RCP
application as EasyMonitoring," said Baptiste Gendron, President of Global
Vision Systems. "We highly recommend to use the product for deploying RCP
application in a secure and easy way."
Excelsior JET not only creates native code executables resistant to
reverse engineering, but also provides the most secure environment for
running Eclipse RCP applications. The environment blocks tampering with
OSGi bundles and injecting unauthorized code via Java classloading hooks
by protecting the Eclipse Runtime itself.
"Congratulations to Excelsior on the new release of their JET 6.5," said
Mike Milinkovich, Executive Director of the Eclipse Foundation. "Their
support for Eclipse RCP and Equinox is a great example of a commercial
ecosystem developing around the Eclipse runtime technologies."
Compatibility and System Requirements
Excelsior JET 6.5 supports Java SE 6 and J2SE 5.0 on Microsoft Windows and
Linux operating systems running on 32-bit Intel x86 and compatible
Equinox OSGi runtime versions 3.1 through 3.4 are supported. Support for
version 3.5 (Galileo) is in the works and will be included in a
