Migrated from NovaTec Jira. Original ticket: INSPECTIT-502
Excelsior JET is a ahead of time compiler which converts all the java code into native code for improved performance. This could be interesting for our server and the UI (whereas the server would benefit a lot more). The licensing of this tool is that a freeware target application could get this one for free, so we should definitely try it out and see how much it brings.
Update: The support for Java 7 is available now, so we can try this out. Should be free as we are open source now.
