Java* Limitations

Because Intel® Dynamic Application Loader (Intel® DAL) uses a Java* VM (Virtual Machine) that is designed for embedded systems and security, some features that exist in other popular Java implementations do not exist in Intel DAL.
The Intel DAL Java version is equivalent to JDK 1.6 with some limitations. Intel DAL does not support the following data types and language features:
  • Float
  • Double
  • Referencing an external library
  • Enums
  • Regex
  • Annotation
  • Reflection
  • Threads
In addition, various API levels have their own limitations. These limitations are listed below.

Product and Performance Information


Intel's compilers may or may not optimize to the same degree for non-Intel microprocessors for optimizations that are not unique to Intel microprocessors. These optimizations include SSE2, SSE3, and SSSE3 instruction sets and other optimizations. Intel does not guarantee the availability, functionality, or effectiveness of any optimization on microprocessors not manufactured by Intel. Microprocessor-dependent optimizations in this product are intended for use with Intel microprocessors. Certain optimizations not specific to Intel microarchitecture are reserved for Intel microprocessors. Please refer to the applicable product User and Reference Guides for more information regarding the specific instruction sets covered by this notice.
