Technical Overview of the K virtual machine (KVM),
with an in-depth look at the newer features
Tuesday 10:45 - 12:00 (Conference Hall)
The K virtual machine (KVM) is a compact JavaTM virtual machine
that has been designed from ground up for network-enabled,
resource-constrained, mobile consumer devices such as cell
phones, pagers, personal organizers and small appliances.
This talk will provide a detailed technical overview of the KVM.
The speaker is a member of the original KVM technology team at Sun.
The talk will highlight the latest KVM development activities,
including the newer, more portable implementation of the
JavaTM bytecode verifier and an overview of the K Native Interface (KNI).
The conclusion of the talk will cover an object-oriented implementation
of the JavaTM bytecode verifier used by Monty (CLDC-HI) Virtual Machine,
which is originally based on KVM's newer and more portable implementation.
