my name is Volker Simonis. I'm currently working for SAP. We have
ported the HotSpot to four (ok, let's say 3.5, because Itanium was
already present - at least somehow:) new processor architectures
(Itanium, PA-RISC, PowerPC and z/Architecture) and three new operating
systems (AIX, HPUX and AS/400). Although we ported Java 5 (and
currently Java 6) we are still highly interested in the OpenJDK
porting projects, because sooner or later the efforts of the OpenJDK
porting projects will hopefully also show up in the SunJDK version.
I forgot to say that while we use both, the C++ and the Template
Interpreter (depending on the platfom), we only ported the C2, server
compiler to new platforms.
I'm looking forward to hopefully lively discussion in this group...
