This chapter includes the following topics:


About BEA JRockit

The BEA JRockit J2SE 5.0 JDK provides a complete run-time environment, including all the tools and utilities needed to develop and run applications using the Java programming language. It includes the BEA JRockit Java Virtual Machine (JVM).

The BEA JRockit Java Virtual Machine (JVM) is the first commercial JVM developed expressly for server-side applications. As a crucial component of WebLogic Server, BEA JRockit is optimized for high-performance Java applications deployed on 32-bit and 64-bit Intel architectures. Furthermore, JRockit provides seamless interoperability across multiple hardware and operating system configurations. JRockit makes it possible to gain optimal performance for your server-side application when it is run on either the Windows or Linux operating system with either a 32-bit or a 64-bit architecture.

For complete details about JRockit, see the following documents:

For a complete list of hardware/operating system configurations on which JRockit is supported, see BEA JRockit JDK Platform Support.


Obtaining BEA JRockit

You can obtain the BEA JRockit J2SE 5.0 JDK simply by downloading it from the following Web site:

If you want to redistribute this product, you must sign a contract called the BEA JRockit Binary Re-Distribution Agreement. This agreement entitles you to obtain the JRockit software at no charge and re-sell it to customers, with or without your own software.

The Binary Re-Distribution Agreement also includes support contracts for BEA partners. The cost of this type of support is calculated from two factors: anticipated redistribution volume and the type of support structure implemented by the partner.

To obtain a copy of the BEA JRockit Binary Re-Distribution Agreement, contact BEA at the following email address:


Support for BEA JRockit in WebLogic Applications

When you distribute WebLogic Server, the BEA JRockit JDK is included by default. BEA automatically provides support for your customers who use JRockit as part of a WebLogic Server package.

If you have special support requirements for your business, send your requests to BEA at the following email address:

For information about BEA support for JRockit, see the following Web site:


Distributing the JRockit JDK as a Stand-alone Product

You may distribute JRockit as a stand-alone product. If you do so, however, any of your customers who use the JRockit JDK separately from WebLogic Server must buy a separate support contract from BEA. For more information, advise your customers to visit the following Web site:

Note: Any Java application can be run on JRockit. When Java applications are not running in a BEA WebLogic environment, however, the configuration settings for the JRockit JDK may need to be adjusted. For more information, see the following documents:
