optimiser : Java Glossary
A tool for making programs run faster and/or in less RAM (Random Access Memory)
. There are tools
that can work on the *.class files produced by any compiler, such as Dash O and Optimize It!. Ron Yorston has a peephole
optimiser project called JOpt. You can run
several optimisers on your class files in succession. Obfuscators are also a form of
optimiser since they reduce the length of the names carried. There are also compilers
that have extensive optimisation built-in.
