I found Port Project for the MIPS Architecture on OpenJDK¡¯s website, but I didn¡¯t get much information there. Could anyone give some advice about our next step or next work please? Is there any one interested in this or could some one give some support? Thanks.

Others will speak for Shark/LLVM, but I worked on a native port to MIPS.
 The interpreter was finished, using OpenJDK's asm interpreter as
opposed to its C++ one, but the compiler was not done (lack of funding
for the project).  You could start from that base if you wanted.  You'd
want to start by merging up from the relatively ancient version it was
based on (anyone remember b18?).
