I posted a proposal in the wiki 
http://wiki.apache.org/general/SummerOfCode2005 

It is about integrating the BCEL class verifier with one or more OS JVM
(written in C or Java).

JikesRVM has no current class verifier, neither jamvm or sableVM. As far
as I know, the spec mandates to have class verification (I just read it
in my JVM Spec (a bit old).

I have been testing how feasible it is, and it looks the right size for
someone interested in understanding this world, and something doable in
a summer.
