I need only to run a small gui (jdownloader2) without any other java app, I need a JVM that doesn't need too much resources to show 2D stuff.
A small, affordable computer with free resources to help people learn, make things, and have fun
Yes, please see this thread : Java ‹ Updating Java on Raspbian from 1.7.0 to 1.8.0mcgyver83 wrote:Any idea about the performances? java7 vs java8?
And this is so for normal "old" Java programs running on the new JVM 8, i.e. without exploiting new Java 8 features. OK, so Minecraft may not be a typical normal program, so we can't expect such a Java 8 performance increase for all our Java programs. But still, it doesn't use any special features of Java 8.radu1337 wrote:So I started and stopped the Minecraft server with both versions of java:
1.7.0_40-b43 => 73 seconds
1.8.0-b129 => 51 seconds
The 1.8.0 version sometimes even starts under 50 seconds.

There is something missing in the 7u75-2.5.4-3+rpi1 package it looks like the new jit is included in the sourcetree but disabled at runtime. I will have to examine the debian package to see if there is a missing build flag.plugwash wrote:I've recently uploaded 7u75-2.5.4-3+rpi1 which has the new jit to.raspbian jessie. I expect 2.5.5 to come through to both wheezy and jessie in-time but i'm currently watching what happens in Debian.
Anyone know how the new jit compares to oracle's propietary one?
