Subject RE: FAQ (was RE: [arch] VM Candidate : JikesRVM http://jikesrvm.sourceforge.net/)
Date Thu, 01 Jan 1970 00:00:00 GMT

Nick,

Thanks for getting a FAQ started.
As we develop a group synergy,
people like me can simply go to
the relevant place there and RTFM
instead of having to ask questions
like my Java-in-Java performance
question.

One thing I would like to see people
contribute to this FAQ is performance
information per my original question
back to Steve Blackburn and the (whole)
list, whose answer you posted on this
new FAQ.

Hard performance numbers on various aspects
of different designs will _really_ help
us as a community get some idea of what
works and what doesn't for various
issues in a Harmony compiler and JVM.
