Runtime and Runtime environment[edit]

Runtime environment redirects here. Per Talk:Runtime environment, Runtime environment was apparently once a separate article which was merged here. Quotes from a couple of articles:

The meanings of the terms "runtime" and "runtime environment" are sufficiently different that these should have separate articles, especially given the current development of new "runtime environments". -- Writtenonsand (talk) 18:43, 1 January 2008 (UTC)

Hey I added something and I think it needs to be improved: "Runtime error" - Conmiro —Preceding unsigned comment added by Conmiro (talkcontribs) 01:06, 26 February 2008 (UTC)

Runtimes and runtime environments are two totally different things. Unfortunately, this article contains interdependent descriptions; similar to the way good is only described as a juxtaposition against evil. As a contingency of seperating this one article into two, both parts will need more complete descriptions. —Preceding unsigned comment added by 67.232.190.211 (talk) 20:33, 9 January 2009 (UTC)

Agree, needs split. Runtime is the dynamic behaviour of a program, as opposed to its static behaviour (what it looks like). A runtime environment is a completely diferent thing; it's an API to provide common services and control. The leak of "virtual machine" is the giveaway... so what does the virtual machine run on in runtime? Another virtual machine? Ad infinitum? SimonTrew (talk) 20:17, 7 April 2009 (UTC)

Run time (computing)Execution timeRelisted. Jenks24 (talk) 02:59, 1 May 2011 (UTC) Current title is still ambiguous with respect to Run-time system, which also falls under the domain of "computing". Cybercobra (talk) 23:15, 20 April 2011 (UTC)

  • Oppose The title does what it says on the can. Chaosdruid (talk) 22:31, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
    • How is that relevant? The issue with the current title isn't its accuracy but rather its ambiguity. --Cybercobra (talk) 23:43, 29 April 2011 (UTC)
  • Oppose I think that "run time" is the common name. If true, the way to address ambiguity would be a different disambiguator. ErikHaugen (talk | contribs) 23:56, 9 May 2011 (UTC)
