JIT (Just-In-Time Compiler) - Definition

JIT is an abbreviation for Just-In-Time Compiler and is also known as Dynamic Translation. When dealing with Java, a Just-In-Time Compiler converts Java byte code (compiled Java source language statements) into native code designed to run on a specific hardware and operating system platform. Since it compiles all the code at once before execution, Java programs often run faster with a JIT than with a Java Virtual Machine. Several modern runtime environments, such as Microsoft's .NET Framework technology and some implementations of Java, rely on JIT compilation for high-speed code execution.
