Platform independent timing of Java virtual machine bytecode instructions.
It parallelizes the Java bytecode without requiring the source code.
Emscripten is a tool that can compile LLVM bytecode to JavaScript, and thus opens up the web to a plethora of native languages.
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. Then, we used the tool converter of Java Card [TM] Technology (JCDK, 2008) that verifies class files comply with limitations of Java Card language subset and then converts Java classes into a CAP file, a JAR-format file which contains the executable binary representation of the classes.
Java is a special case, as are some variants of Pascal: here the program code is compiled into an intermediate 'bytecode', which is halfway between the original source code and the machine executable code.
They cover using the interpreter, extending Lua with functions such as return values, working with tables, using strings and modules, handling events naturally with co-routines, developing bytecode, collecting garbage, implementing tables and strings, working with the debug library, and exploring libraries for such elements as the core, co-routines, packages, strings, tables, math, input/output and the community.
Sun said its new NetBeans profiler incorporates dynamic bytecode instrumentation to enables low-overhead profiling to achieve results in situations where the use of other profilers becomes impossible or impractical.
The code is then run on a virtual machine (VM), a program written in native code on the host hardware that translates generic Java bytecode into usable code on the hardware.
