Thank you Alexey,
I thought that IBM "gave j9" to the open source community...:)
I left IBM at 2006 and I did not work on the JVM from 2004. I discovered a new
algorithms that will significantly improve the performance of J9 (the garbage 
collection part). I discovered these algorithms last month. I talked to IBM and they have
problem with this since I discovered these algorithms after I left IBM. If j9 code is available,
I will be able to implement these algorithms in no time.
Could you please send me Xiao-Feng Li email?
Thank you,

>> Dear Sir/Madam, I have a few questions/help. Please let me introduce myself.My name
is diab abuaiadh. I worked at ibm and invented the parallel compactionalgorithms implemented
at ibm products (sov and j9). I left IBM at 2006.I have new algorithms for the garbage collection
and I am very interested to implementthese algorithms. I have a few questions for you: did
IBM gave j9 to the open source community?In other words, can I get the code for j9 and implement/test
my new algorithms? I will be happy to share some of the ideas I have with the open source
community. Thank you for your help,Diab.> >> _________________________________________________________________>
