Does appletviewer support the Just In Time Compiler? If yes, do you still invoke a full immediate compile in the same manner as  a JIT capable browser?

Instead of answering your question here (since you seem to have heard things about JIT), I'd like you to refer Java Unleashed book in the ending chapters. You'll find it faster by searching in the index for 'just-in-time' compilers. If you cannot afford buying or refering Java Unleashed book, you can go through it on-line at http://www.developer.com. A link 'REFERENCE' will take you to 'more than 100 books on-line ...' link. Click here and you'll see several topics, including Java. Click on Java and lo, there you have Java Unleashed text book ready on-line! You can find several books here that will be helpful to you in your career.
Regards.

I don't know what the exact definition of an answer here is at Experts Exchange, but I'm pretty sure this doesn't qualify. However, if I was in need of a generic reference to an answer for all my Java inquireries, this copy/paste one would take the cake.

Yes, Applet viewer uses the JIT compiler whci comes with Java performance pack. The ways to invoke it are :

you must set the JAVA_COMPILER
environment variable to the value "symcjit". Use the following command
from the DOS prompt:

      set JAVA_COMPILER=symcjit

When the JAVA_COMPILER environment variable is set, the JIT compiler
will be the default compiler invoked by the command-line tools.

An alternative way of invoking the JIT compiler is to set the value of
the java.compiler property to "symcjit". With the javac and
appletviewer tools, you can do this as follows:

      appletviewer -J-Djava.compiler=symcjit MyApplet.html
      javac -J-Djava.compiler=symcjit MyApp.java

Thanks I think this answered my question.  However I was under the impression that I could invoke an immediate Just In Time compile from within the source code. If you can quickly answer that one, could you please e-mail at kevinh@natech.com since this Q/A will be close.
