Not only does the Dalvik VM provide an efficient bytecode interpreter, it also lets programmers create portable code.
Depending on whether one is making a Java application or applet, the class bytecode will be handled by the Interpreter for applications or by a Java Virtual Machine (JVM) and a browser for applets.
For this purpose, such applets have been compiled by Java Sun Compiler (Java Compiler, 2008) that transforms them into bytecode.
A variety of other programming languages make use of the execution model/platform of Java: they have been designed to be compiled into Java bytecodes, so that they share the platform independence while offering different features; at present there are more than 200 systems available (see URL below), which include many popular programming languages.
There are also implementations of Java compilers that compile to native object code, such as GCJ, removing the intermediate bytecode stage, but the output of these compilers can only be run on a single architecture.
Machine ('JVM'), which translates bytecode into instructions
Este bytecode es ejecutado por un interprete en tiempo de ejecucion denominado JRE (Java Runtime Environment) [4] [8].
It supports 16-bit Thumb instructions and Java bytecode execution via its Jazelle technology.
Este lenguaje es el equivalente al bytecode de Java.
This is made possible through the use of applications compiled to portable Java bytecode along with the Jini and JavaSpaces technologies (73) that have been enabled by the Java environment.
These are weaker than the rules for static typechecking in Java source, and there are verifiable bytecode programs that are not typable under the Java typing rules.
For purposes of efficiency, WML Script is compiled into a WML Script bytecode, which is downloaded by the client, and run on a WML Script virtual machine or interpreter.
