After our presentation at JavaOne, we've done significant performance engineering to reduce the runtime overhead of Javeleon.

We are quite proud to say that the runtime overhead is now lower than it's ever been. In fact, we have brought the hefty average overhead of about 275% in release 1.5, down to about 15% in release 2.0 beta.

The runtime overhead was measured using the SPECjvm2008 test suite and is shown in the figure below:

As the figure furthermore shows, the runtime overhead of Javeleon is now comparable to the industry standard tool JRebel (www.zeroturnaround.com). We feel that the test results are amazing, given that Javeleon is much more powerful than JRebel in terms of supported code changes.
