Jikes Research Virtual Machine (Jikes RVM)
The Jikes Research Virtual Machine (Jikes RVM) is a Java virtual machine that is written in Java. Its goal is to provide a platform for research in virtual machine technologies such as garbage collection and adaptive optimization. This kind of research is done by modifying the Jikes Research Virtual Machine itself. Consequently, the Jikes RVM project does not provide any binary releases.

The Jikes Research Virtual Machine should not be confused with the discontinued Jikes compiler. Both projects have a common history in that they were both started by IBM but they are now independent of each other.
