Mobile JikesRVM is a Java framework built on top of the IBM Jikes Research Virtual Machine. It extends the latter JVM with strong code mobility, i.e. Java threads have the capability to migrate among different hosts transparently, like any other serializable object. It has been developed by Raffaele Quitadamo during his PhD and is freely available online as a CVS project (see below for instructions on how to download it).
