FW: [Jikes-dev] IBM releases Jikes Research Virtual Machine on developerworks

Given the recent discussions of threads and the "right" way to
implement processes, I thought this might be of interest.  IBM
is releasing a JAVA VM specifically for the research community
to experiment with.  -jc

> Just to let you know that IBM Research has just released the Jikes
> Research Virtual Machine (RVM) on developerworks:
>   http://oss.software.ibm.com/developerworks/projects/jikesrvm
> The RVM is designed to execute Java programs that are typically used
> in research on fundamental virtual machine design issues. It will
> provide academic and research communities with a flexible testbed to
> prototype new virtual machine technologies and experiment with
> different design alternatives. It runs on the AIX/PowerPC,
> Linux/PowerPC, and Linux/IA-32 platforms, and exhibits
> industry-strength performance for many benchmark programs on the first
> two of these platforms.
> The Jikes RVM includes the latest VM technologies for dynamic
> compilation, adaptive optimization, garbage collection, thread
> scheduling, and synchronization. The Jikes RVM is implemented in the
> Java programming language.
> It was originally hoped to release the project using the name
> "Jalapeno" that was internally used during its development. However,
> it turns out some company has a claim on this name, so we decided to
> use "Jikes", as we have done before for projects from the Software
> Technology department here at IBM Research.
> The project has no direct link to the Jikes Compiler Project other
> than requiring the  Jikes compiler for its compilation. 
> Indeed, this is the
> reason Jikes supports the the "+K" option.
