In this talk we'll discuss the basic architecture of the JVM and the bytecode set of the interpreter. We'll show the major subsystems, the families of bytecodes and how they operate. All the concepts are explained with simple, colourful graphics and a unique narrative.
At the end of the talk, we'll discuss what's needed to implement a simple cutdown JVM and show a simple open-source implementation that can execute some simple methods (Ocelot).
