Java1 support added: SiSoftware Sandra everywhere
London, UK, September 14, 2007 - SiSoftware is pleased to announce Java1 support in SiSoftware Sandra XII (2008), its latest version of its award-winning utility which includes remote analysis, benchmarking and diagnostic features for PCs, servers, phones, PDAs and networks. The new benchmarks allow users to compare and contrast the performance of native, Java and .NET for arithmetic, multi-media and memory operations.
In addition to the 4 architectures (x86, x64/AMD64/EM64T, IA64/Itanium2, ARM) and the 3 platforms (Windows, Windows CE3, Windows Mobile) supported natively, Java support means the ability to run on any architecture and platform that has a Java RE 6 (Runtime Engine) available - from the simplest mobile phone or embedded device to the largest multi-processor server cluster without recompilation.
With the continued security implications for ActiveX components an the increased popularity of 3-rd party web-browsers (Firefox, Opera), Java applets are making a comeback. In addition, many open-source applications are written in Java, allowing them to work on multiple platforms (Linux, FreeBSD, Mac OSX, Solaris) than just Windows using the same code base.
Thus the ability of a computer system to run Java applications is quite important and has to be included to provide a complete performance analysis of such computer system.
SiSoftware is commited in releasing a complete Java version of SiSoftware Sandra later on that can be used on any desktop architecture and platform with Java RE 6 available.
