The JVM in Rust

Posted on October 2, 2016 by Dom Rodriguez

Started work on my JVM implementation in Rust.

Currently, I’ve got quite a few of the opcodes used in the JVM’s classfiles.

One of the main blocking issues I’ve come across with jvm-rs is the garbage collector. Either I make one myself, use an existing library I found. It doesn’t look like the Rust team will be adding GC. This is due to the ownership system, I believe.

All in all, I’m really looking forward to the future of jvm-rs. I just need to balance my workload with other stuff, like college workload, and other things.
