The design of the hotswap patch is described in the PDF linked from
I believe (under correction from you, Thomas!) that the patch is the
initial result of a research project that he did earlier this year at
JKU Linz, that he is now working on other things, and that he doesn't
have specific plans (yet) to extend it further. See the message below.
Thomas will be talking about this work at Sun on Wednesday, and InfoQ
will be taping the talk (like most of the talks at the Summit).

Subject: Dynamic Code Evolution - Patch and Documentation
This is the first (pre-alpha) version of the dynamic code evolution
The attachment contains:
- A patch that can be used upon jdk7-b51 with the sources for dynamic
code evolution as well as the test cases (37 of 41 should be OK);
please consider that it is still a prototype implementation.
- A high-level technical description of the implementation with
pointers to the source code and TODO sections that inform about future
Any kind of feedback most welcome!
Let me know if you have any issues compiling the code or running the
