I believe your OS does this job "Virtual Memory Management", no JVM no JAVA 
application must do this.
It is impossible for OS to do this if JVM  allocates not moveable memory, I 
believe it don't.
I think it is not very meaningful to dublicate OS functionality in JAVA 
application, It can be meaningful
if single application with single thread runs on your machine.
