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 in Computer Science and Engineering at the University of Modena and Reggio Emilia. Mobile JikesRVM is freely available online as a CVS project (see below for instructions on how to download it).
Phd Dissertation about Mobile JikesRVMThe Issue of Strong Mobility: an Innovative Approach based on the IBM Jikes Research Virtual Machine.
It has been defended at the Deparment of Computer Science and Engineering, University of Modena and Reggio Emilia, Italy.
