Dynamic software updating (DSU) is an extremely useful feature to be used during software evolution. It can be used to reduce down-time costs, for security enhancements, profiling and testing new functionalities. There are many studies and solutions on dynamic software updating regarding diverse problems introduced by the topic, but there is a lack of research which compares various approaches concerning supported changes and demands on resources. In this paper, we are comparing currently available concepts for Java programming language that deal with dynamically applied changes and measuring the impact of those changes on computer resource demands.
