Java "Java is a programming language that allows developers to write once and deploy everywhere - from high-end gaming desktops to smartphones. Its OS-agnostic and widespread nature is one of its strongest selling points, but one area where it can fall flat is performance. Generally, Java applications are not going to perform as well as native applications written for a specific OS. However, thanks to Project Sumatra that performance gap may soon become less of an issue."

moondevil,

"Graal is the project to integrate Maxime JIT which is 100% Java code."

I wasn't aware, that's very interesting. I wonder how you bootstrap such a thing. Do you need another VM to bootstrap the Maxime JIT's code?

Nice diagram for a project you mentioned:

"Even with VM exploits it depends on which VM you are using, there are many more out there, besides Oracle's."

I'm not ready to stop calling it Sun's VM ;)
