Mark Wielaard has sent in this update on Gary Benson's latest work:
"Gary Benson is writing a series of
blog posts called about Zero and
Shark. Zero is an interpreter-only port of OpenJDK that uses no
assembler based on libffi.
Shark is a just-in-time (JIT) compiler for Zero based on LLVM. They provide an universal architecture
port of Java and are currently included in the IcedTea project. Inside Zero and
Shark has published three installments this far: Java threads and state transitions,
Handles and Oops, Traps and
Checks and Calling Conventions
and The Call Stub.
