Understanding Intel® Optimizations in the Android* Runtime Compiler
By Tao Wang (Intel) Posted on 09/28/15 0
The application developer generally writes a section of the application in the Java* language. This Java code is then transformed into an Android-specific bytecode, called the Dex bytecode. In the various flavors of Android’s major releases, there have been several ways to go from the bytecode format to the actual binary format that is run on the processor. For example, in the Jelly Bean* version, there was a just-in-time (JIT) compiler in the runtime, called Dalvik* VM. From KitKat* on, the appearance of a new Android runtime (ART), added the existence of an ahead-of-time (AOT) compiler in ART. Two optimizations that Intel implemented in the ART compiler. Both optimizations provide a means to simplify compile-time evaluated loops. These elements are only part of Intel’s commitment to provide the best user experience for the Android OS and are presented here to show how synthetic benchmarks are greatly optimized by these optimizations.
