Subject Re: Harmony may provide a more general VM than JVM
Date Fri, 13 May 2005 17:29:44 GMT
Harmony should be just a JVM. The runtime model between .NET and Java,
for example, is diferent enouth to be well harder than perform the
bytecode translation.
See IKVM, that run java bytecode on top of mono/.net.
