JamVM Gets a New Flavour

Porting JamVM to OpenJDK

This talk will discuss the port of JamVM to the OpenJDK library.

Many free Java VMs use GNU Classpath as their class library. With the release of OpenJDK these VMs have another free, and mature library alternative. Porting a GNU Classpath based VM to OpenJDK is, however, non-trivial as the VM interfaces of the libraries are substantially different.

This talk will discuss the port of JamVM to the OpenJDK library. It will provide a brief overview of the library interfaces and will highlight several difficulties encountered due to mismatches in library/VM responsibilities.

The talk will be of particular interest to other runtime engineers thinking about doing a port to OpenJDK. However, it should be of interest to anybody who wishes to learn more about Java runtime internals, and the roles that the VM and class libraries play.
