I have tried both the JIT3 and INTRP with some test programs on my PXA255.
JIT3 was considerable slower, but I had only simple test programs that
where executed once.
Most test programs worked, some not.
However, I don't have the following:
a) expertise in Java (somehow I don't like the language, /me likes python
more then it comes to interpreted languages)
b) expertise in the inner stuff of Kaffe, classpath etc to be able to
debug the non-working test code
Also, all programs where on the text I/O or console level. I didn't try so
far any graphical stuff that works with the framebuffer device of Linux
and I'm still not sure which way I should go here.
