lightweight virtual machine using the OpenJDK class library
Avian is a lightweight virtual machine and class library designed to provide a useful subset of Java's features, suitable for building self-contained applications.
The VM is implemented from scratch and designed to be both fast and small.
- Just-In-Time (JIT) compilation for fast method execution. - Generational, copying garbage collection ensures short pause times and good spatial locality. - Thread-local heaps provide O(1) memory allocation with no synchronization overhead. - Null pointer dereferences are handled via OS signals to avoid unnecessary branches.
