Managed Runtime Initiative For Improving Managed Runtime Execution
Azul Systems have announced a new Managed Runtime Initiative. The initiative aims to identify, develop and deliver interfaces and functionality across vertical components of the systems stack, in an effort to improve the execution of a managed runtime.
The initiative will also advocate new interfaces and functionality, and develop reference implementations to promote the value of specific system stack enhancements. It will work with both proprietary and open source communities, and plans to upstream contributions into existing open source products. As part of the initiative, Azul are releasing a reference implementation based on OpenJDK and the Linux operating system, as open source.
More information on the initiative, is available at the Managed Runtime Initiative website.
