Just In Time (JIT) is an inventory strategy implemented to improve the return on investment of a business by reducing in-process inventory and its associated costs.
The technique of Just In Time Programming is used as a programming method that allows to (re-)write parts of a running system.
The Just in Time philosophy was also applied other segments of the supply chain in several types of industries.

 Just-in-time compilation - Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia
In computing, just-in-time compilation (JIT), also known as dynamic translation, is a technique for improving the performance of bytecode-compiled programming systems, by translating bytecode into native machine code at runtime.
The goal is to combine many of the advantages of native and bytecode compilation: Much of the "heavy lifting" of parsing the original source code and performing basic optimization is handled at compile time, well prior to deployment -- compilation from bytecode to machine code is much faster than from source.
Compilers from bytecode to machine code are easier to write, because the portable bytecode compiler has already done much of the work.

Compilers also exist which translate from one high level language to another, or sometimes to an intermediate language that still needs further processing; these are sometimes known as cascaders.
Building a self-hosting compiler is a Bootstrappingbootstrapping problem -- the first such compiler for a language must be compiled either by a compiler written in a different language, or (as in Hart and Levin's Lisp compiler) compiled by running the compiler in an interpreter.
Compilers which are capable of producing both native and foreign binary output may be called either a cross-compiler or a native compiler depending on a specific use, although it would be more correct to classify them as a cross-compilers.

 Just-in-time   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Although in theory a different compiler on another platform could be used on the same source code, in practice this tends to be very difficult to achieve due to differences in compilers.
There is an intermediate ground, known as p-code or bytecode, where the source code is compiled half-way at compile time and later, at run time, it is interpreted from there.
The basic idea behind a JIT is that the bytecode is smaller and easier to compile than the original source code, so that the time spent compiling it the "rest of the way" on any particular platform is quite small.

To reduce the compilation time, there is no independent single pass for the register allocation; that is, the register allocation runs synchronously with the code generation.
compiler, a class needs to be resolved at compile time as much as possible in order to obtain the addresses of methods and object fields and thus to generate better code.
compiler, we have implemented a different way of scheduling code within a basic block, running in C * n, where C is the size of the lookahead to be scheduled, in view of the compilation time constraint.

 Development system with methods for just-in-time compilation of programs - Patent 6151703
The just-in-time compiler compiles each method of a Java program on a "just-in-time" basis--that is, it compiles each method as the method is actually used.
If the callee method is also compiled, the compiled code slot stores a pointer to a memory block which comprises the just-in-time compiled code for the method; this is an optimization which allows direct invocation of the callee method's compiled code from the caller's compiled code.
When a method is compiled, its call(s) to another (callee) method is compiled into a machine code call instruction to an address pointed to by the compiled code slot of the callee.

 The Fastest Fourier Transform in the West   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Runtime compilation, more commonly known as "just-in-time" compilation is a method of compiling programs to native code just before running it; hence the name "just-in-time".
Runtime compilation is able to maintain portability, and FFTW demonstrates this by its ability to adapt the computation to the particular hardware thereby performing faster algorithms.
Compiling programs "just-in-time" gives the ability to do so while still maintaining the characteristics of statically compiled programs and this is what appeals to developers.

 Just-in-Time Compilation
This term describes a compilation technique in which a source language (typically something like Java bytecode) is compiled to native machine code on demand.
Running times are reasonable close to those achieved by a native compiler (as good as a 25% penalty and as bad as a 200% penalty).
The resulting compiler is only compared to competitors' compilers; I would prefer to see a comparison between two compilers that only differed in the optimizations described.

 just-in-time compiler - a Whatis.com definition - see also: JIT
Using the Java just-in-time compiler (really a second compiler) at the particular system platform compiles the bytecode into the particular system code (as though the program had been compiled initially on that platform).
The just-in-time compiler comes with the virtual machine and is used optionally.
It compiles the bytecode into platform-specific executable code that is immediately executed.

When the JIT is invoked for the first time there is an overhead or performance penalty, since the assembly is converted into its Native code or image using the Native Image Generator (Ngen.exe).

 SE Using Java, 2nd Edition -- Chapter 39
Fortunately, existing JIT compilers compile very quickly, and even with medium size applets (3,000 lines of Java source code or 60K of bytecode), the startup time is not obviously longer with the JIT compiler than it is with the interpreter.
To minimize JIT compilation time, as many optimizations as possible should be made before the class file is generated.

 Dynamic translation : Just-in-time compilation   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-08)
Dynamic translation, also known as Just-in-time compilation (JIT), is a virtual machine implementation approach, used to speed up execution of bytecode computer programs.
To execute a program unit such as a method or a function, the virtual machine compiles its bytecodes into (hardware) machine code.
The translated code is also placed in a cache, so that next time that unit's machine code can be executed immediately, without repeating the translation.

Since the JIT compilation itself is part of the total execution time of a Java program, it must be fast and the benefit from compilation must outweigh the JIT compilation overhead.
