*This page details issues surrounding running EclipseLink, or any Java application using JPA or native ORM in an Eclipse IDE environment on 64 bit OS platforms like Windows 7 64, Vista 64, Windows 64 or Linux 64.  We will concentrate on Microsoft Windows 7 64 bit edition.
 
*Rembember: java bytecodes are only tokens - they are the machine language for the Java Virtual Machine.  Therefore bytecodes that are compiled on a 64 bit JVM, a 32 bit JVM or actually any type of hardware that has a JVM - are the same.  They need to be the same because the JVM is the implementation of a specification.
 
*The following enhancement # [http://bugs.eclipse.org/286004 286004] tracks 64 bit issues and fixes to enable EclipseLink development on 64 bit Windows 7.

Holland Park is a district located in the Royal borough of Kensington & Chelsea. This area of West London is a prominent part of the city, known for its prestigious shops bars and restaurants. Its grand Victorian houses and huge open spaces are dotted about this affluent area. Holland Park itself, refers to the horticultural parkland, which complements the otherwise urban setting that London is known for.
  
==Benefits of the 64-bit Java Virtual Machine==
+
Those that reside in this area are prone to taking a Holland Park taxi to and from their home. This is not because the area isn’t so well connected, but because travelling in style is what the wealthy to. The Central line of the London Underground serves Holland Park with its very own tube station with the same name. [http://ticktocktaxi.co.uk/ A Ride in a Holland Park Taxis] Getting to and from this area is no problem, if you wish to do so by public transport. However, if you wish to secure yourself a ride in a private hire vehicle to Holland Park, than this is a good idea. Especially if are coming to the area for dinner or drinks.

*20100330: I have seen a very surprising result that results in a <font color="green">'''4.0 to 4.7 times speedup'''</font> for pure java in-memory POJO manipulation single threaded applications (without object recreation triggering the '''GC''') when they are run on the '''64 bit''' version of the ''SUN JVM'' as opposed to the '''32 bit''' version of the ''SUN JVM'' on a ''64 bit'' version of '''Windows 7'''.
+
*Note: The speedup is less pronounced once you enable disk and net access and allow the GC to run.
+
*Also note that since only the ''server'' JIT is available as a 64 bit JVM from SUN/Oracle that the [http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/64-bit#32_vs_64_bit startup time] is slower - this will not affect EE persistence applications that run on application server containers'

There a number of places to eat here, ranging from the most luxury of eateries, to some a little bit more laid back. If you are looking to eat in the area, then you might as well go all out. Plush Holland Park shouldn’t be done in halves. Not that we are suggesting you splurge a great deal on your plastic, of course. To compromise, we have found somewhere that everyone will love.
