Many of you may already know Excelsior JET. For the few who haven’t heard of it, here’s the shortest possible description of what Excelsior JET does for you:
Excelsior JET enables you to distribute and deploy your Java™ applications as optimized native executables that start and work faster, do not depend on the JRE, and are as difficult to reverse engineer as if they were written in C++. Excelsior JET currently allows you to create native executables for Windows and Linux and will soon also support Mac OS X.
Dmitry and Excelsior LLC aren’t unknowns to the Java game development community. They’ve been roaming the Java Gaming forums for ages and have been very supportive to all kinds of folks, from amateurs to more established players. They are currently doing a fund raiser, and i think it’s a cause worthy of our support. Here’s the deal.
- You pay whatever you want for an Excelsior JET license (Standard Edition, no support, commercial use permitted).
- Excelsior donates the net price to the Save Life Foundation on your behalf. Save Life is a local charity that helps children and young adults fight cancer.
The fund raiser ends on the 31th of May 2014 so you have about two more weeks to do something good and get something awesome in return!
