Hi Xiaofeng,
I left IBM at 2006. I thought that IBM gave J9 to the open source community.
If I have J9 or (sun jvm...I think it is called sov) I will be able to implement
the new algorithms in short time....Maybe one month or less.
I am not familiar with DRLVM...I am afraid it may take time to implement 
the new algorithms....the other things is if I implement the new algorithms
on J9, I will be able to compare the result with the previous algorithm in J9.
Question: what algrithms you use to implement the garbage collection in DRLVM?
what compaction algorithm you use?
Thanks for the info,
